The RDP timeline makes reference to an initial design brought forward by the environmental architect. I have included this design below to give a better understanding of the process so far.
While it was felt there were many beneficial features to this design and that it could have a positive impact to life within the village the committee ultimately took the decision to reject this design on the basis of scale.
Over the last few years it had become clear that there are a number in the village who would oppose any change being made to the green, however there are others who feel the addition of other facilities will expand the benefits the green has to offer. It is the responsibility of the committee to balance these competing objectives and it was felt this initial design did not achieve this balance primarily due to the scale of development on the green. It was with this in mind that the committee rejected the design and instead presented the design which went out to consultation.
