Parish Name Change
Following overwhelming support from residents through the Village Plan survey, we applied to revert to the original name of Newton-in-the-Isle.
At their meeting on Thursday 25th February, Fenland District Council accepted our request and will now be conducting all the legal processes on our behalf. New signs have been erected at the entrances to the village to celebrate our new identity.
The Village Plan process has highlighted a number of other issues that can be addressed promptly by the Parish Council and we will provide further feedback in the coming months.
