Cowbit Parish Open Meeting Report
The annual Cowbit Parish Council Open meeting took place at the village hall on April 15. Around 40 members of the public attended including a significant number of younger members of our community. A number of issues were raised. The developer who has bought the fire-damaged Dun Cow public house was on hand and invited comments on plans he showed to redevelop the site as housing. Various opinions were put forward, some supportive, others not, and there was a suggestion that that some form of public facility could/should be included. No formal planning application has yet been submitted to South Holland District Council, and discussions with the planning authorities are ongoing. However the developer did make very clear that to reopen or rebuild the Dun Cow as a pub was not an option he was considering as he did not believe the pub business to be viable. He also stated that damage to the building was “extensive”, and their plans certainly involved demolition of the existing pub building and using most if not all the site for housing. Several people expressed a wish to see a youth club or similar facility for younger people in the village. Local PCSO Beverley Robinson offered her help with getting something started, and both the local and parish council pledged to support the young people of the village in running something. A committee is being formed to take these plans forward. Other matters raised included enforcement (or lack of..) of the 7.5tonne weight limit in Stonegate and Backgate when the A16 is closed (PCSO Robinson promised to investigate), gates being left open allowing unsafe access to the A16, and the possibility of a part-time post office facility one afternoon a week in the village hall.
