  1. What are the consequences for allowing housing which is – as I understand it – surplus to what was agreed for Effingham in the Neighbourhood / Local Plan? I would hope this might give the village a credit score for when the next NP and LP have to be agreed but equally I wonder whether this might invalidate what was agreed and leave the village open to even more development. FWIW I don’t especially like the design but at least it – apparently – saves the pub and pub building, and if it means The Haig now attracts a higher footfall and becomes a profitable venture, then it might be the best of a bad job.
