Protecting Bradpole’s Green Spaces ~ Pageant’s Field

We continue to follow the community requests in our Parish Plan to seek ways of protecting Bradpole’s Green Spaces.

In early 2017 we were able to obtain protection for Gore Cross Green through Fields in Trust.

Our focus is now on Pageants Field. We have agreed with Fields in Trust that this space may also be protected in perpetuity for the community.

July 31 We await HM Land Registry to complete the process.

June 30  With  the Deed now in place the agreement is in the course of being registered at HM Land Registry to complete the process.

March 26 ON TARGET A Deed of Dedication is executed between Bradpole Parish Council and Fields in Trust.

In the meantime Bradpole Parish Council has become a “Friend” of Fields in Trust helping them to protect our open spaces.

Individuals and families may also become “Friends” see:

Extension of new fence at Gore Cross~Update

Gore Cross Green -New fencing March 2018

 Following the successful installation of a replacement wooden fence at Fields In Trust protected Gore Cross Green Bradpole councillors have accepted a quote from local contractors John Bright’s Fencing to extend the fencing along two further sides of this green amenity space.

The fencing & posts along Hemletts Close & Townsend Way is becoming dilapidated and rusty.

We had hoped to have this work completed in time for the School Holidays. Unfortunately our chosen contractors are behind schedule.

To ensure the safety of the area during the holidays we have now asked for the work to be undertaken during the month of September.

This is part of the ongoing maintenance policy for our Parish owned Green Spaces.

The remaining fence borders the main Beaminster Road and is partly concealed by hedging. This fence will remain for the time being but will be reviewed from time to time.
