The Parish Council has agreed a ‘tenancy at will’ with the County Council for the Infants School playing field in New School Road. It is intended by both parties that this will translate into a long term lease of the land.
This is good news because it makes available a little more green open space to the community. The rights of existing users will be protected.
It is expected that the field will be open for use from 0800 until dusk and subject to a limited number of common sense rules. Ball games will be allowed.
At the moment the field is just that, a field. The Parish Council has no plans to ‘develop’ it but will monitor its use and listen to any good ideas which come along.
Note that the field is a Protected Village Amenity Area in South Cambs Local Plan and a Local Green Space in the Neighbourhood Plan. Anything that the Parish Council does will reflect these designations
