The TNP can help protect village amenities by identifying which are important and by preventing certain changes of use. It would only do this where there is a threat.

 

For instance, in the last 20 years Twyford has lost its fire station, its police station and police houses, the Dolphin Inn, Tin-Tacs iron mongers, Lloyds Bank, Humphreys farm shop, Lathams photography, Lampards the builders, Cecil Hut and, almost, the Bugle Inn.  Most of the amenities were converted to housing.

 

The TNP can also allocate land for new community facilities or open space but these must be realistic, not just aspirational.

 

Are any under threat and if so, which should be supported and developed?

                                                                          

What is lacking? What improvements could be made?  Who is is not served well?
