Public Open Space

Based on the feedback received to date, we are proposing a large green corridor that will run through the middle of the site on either side of Elm Bank Ditch, which will become new public open space for the enjoyment of the entire village.There would be a new formal village green off Well Lane and we would pay for the enhancement and improvement of the current children’s play area. The green corridor to the south would retain a natural and open appearance but would be publicly accessible.
We are in discussions with the Parish Council about the future ownership and management of this new public open space. Our preference would be to give approximately 6 acres of land to the Parish Council, together with a significant financial contribution for its future maintenance.
