Good News for Fontmell Magna!! FMPC is pleased to announce the application to build 25 houses on land North of Mill Street has been refused. This is an important decision for the future of the village, and much work has been done to protect this site for over six years. Thanks are extended to our residents and friends, experts, campaigners and supporters for all their help to get this result. While the applicant does have the right of appeal, this is the second time that a major application has been refused for this land, and that will have a bearing on any future applications.
