PROPOSALS REMAIN SUSPENDED
Attempts by supporters of the proposal to sell part of the Caldicot School
field for a supermarket to persuade Monmouthshire County Council to reconsider
its decision to suspend the scheme failed. County Councillors Tony Easson,
Jim Higginson and John Marshall argued that the suspension decision was
“too hasty” but other councillors argued that it would not
be right to go ahead without the support of the town council.
Gateway Credit Unit, which recently opened at Caldicot Methodist Church,
asked for volunteers to help in its work of helping members to save money
regularly and to access low cost loans. (Details 01495 750030) The town
council made a grant of £500 to the Credit Union.
The dispute over the play fort at the Castle Inn was settled. The owners
were granted permission to move it to another part of the pub garden.
