 Play area Improvements

The introduction of new play equipment to Kennington Close play area has been put on hold due to a more demanding priority.  It has been decided that Allwood Road play area is going to be fenced around to ensure that children and families are safe from vehicles and dog mess when being used.  This park is very busy after school and parents have raised their concerns.  Cllrs Pache and Mrs Fuller shall be looking into the costs involved and will bring a recommendation to a future meeting for discussion.

It has also been decided to fence around the play equipment on Kennington Close play area to ensure that the area played in by children and families are free from dog mess.  Recommendations for this will also be discussed at a future meeting.


 Oak Wood

It has been brought to the Parish Councils attention that people are spraying weeds in Oak Wood and dumping their garden waste.  Please ensure that this stops immediately as it is then the job of the Parish Council to get the waste cleared and as it is not Highways land they will not clear on the Councils behalf.

With regards to spraying – this should not be done as it can be hazardous to animals and children in the area.  If you have any concerns regarding the weeds in the wood, please contact the Clerk who will pass any comments onto the Council for any maintenance work required.
