  1. Currently, only the grass areas are being maintained. There are lots of bushes and trees which have been planted but are not being maintained, making public areas look very ‘scruffy’. When asking one of the garden personnel, who was wandering around with a strimmer, to please strim around the bushes on the public area outside our property, he refused. Surely, this should be part of the duties of keeping the public areas in a good state.

    1. Thank you for your comment – please may we request that you email the Parish Clerk with details on

  2. Why is the field behind Smith Barry Circus and Crescent no longer marked on the plan as a public open space – this area has been regularly used by local walkers since the sale by the MOD to C & M, and therefore very firmly established RoWs?

    1. Thank you for your comment. Vistry have informed the Parish Council that this land is owned by Albion Water therefore is not able to be part of a POS transfer.

  3. Why has part of the wooded area behind the tennis courts been fenced off?

    1. Thank you for your question – we understand from Vistry that this area is in the process of being sold to one of the properties bordering the Tennis Courts. For more information please contact Vistry – the Parish Clerk can help with this if you wish.
