Application for a Parish Flagpole

Union flag

The Parish Council has applied to NNC for planning consent for a flagpole at the Village Hall, for the flying of ceremonial flags on appropriate civic occasions.

It will have an internal halyard, eliminating the noise often caused by the halyard hitting the pole in the wind.
