This website, hemyock.org, is a community-run website for local people to advertise their forthcoming events and achievements.  It was designed as a central place where people don't have to search specifically for things and avoid the problems that local groups have in getting people to visit isolated websites.  We get about 200 people visiting per day, or 6000 a month.

Do you want more housing built on ‘exceptional sites’ (agricultural land bordering the village which would not usually be available for development)?  Hemyock plans to join with Clayhidon in forming a Community Land Trust. There is only a short window to apply for funding towards this. (Is this being rushed through?) In essence the Community Land Trust would form a partnership with a Housing Association to build houses that would be available to the local community in perpetuity, with a proportion available to Hemyock residents.
