In honour of the late Town Councillor Neville James Chard, Linden Homes has named the primary road through its popular Beaumont Park development as Chard Lane.

As a respected member of the Town Council and the positive influence on the community Linden Homes has named the road in his memory.

A ceremony took place last week to acknowledge the naming of the road.

Joining Neville’s son, Steve Chard and his family at Beaumont Park were Cllr Tony Ring; the Town Mayor, and Jo Dixon, Marketing Manager from Linden Homes South.
