Statement issued on behalf of Eton Town Council
On Friday morning 19th June, representatives from Eton Town Council and Eton Wick Village Association met Mr Sines at his request at Crown Farm.
The following assurance was given:
Mr Sines stated that having bought Crown Farm his intentions were to invest in and develop what is there, subject to planning permission, and that this most definitely did not include allowing travellers’ caravans to occupy the site.
It should be stressed again that all planning and legal authority resides with RBWM as the Planning Authority in this case, so that that any development or change of use will be subject to planning regulations, and these will include assessments on the impact on green belt and flood plain and environmental considerations of any proposed development.
Eton Town Council and Eton Wick Village Association have worked tirelessly over the past weeks in monitoring the situation as it developed and keeping residents and interested parties updated, including issuing a prepared statement which was widely publicised. The two bodies have acted in a watchdog capacity to ensure that the proper responsible authorities were kept constantly informed of developments. The meeting with Mr Sines was considered essential in order to try and obtain an understanding of his plans, and it is expected that he will make his full intentions clear in a formal manner as soon as possible.
Any enquiries on this situation should be directed to Bob Austen, the Town Clerk of Eton Town Council on firstname.lastname@example.org.
It is proposed that a Zoom EWVA meeting will be held within the next 7 days where Ward Councillors will be present to answer questions in person.
