Common Land

Those people who regularly use the Common Land at the junction of Meadowfield and Painshawfield Roads may have noticed some work has been done to improve this amenity.
Members of the Estate Committee have removed a number of seedlings which have grown over the years into sizeable trees, paths have been mown around the area and also into the centre of the common to facilitate walking and material from these has been placed in the corner a to encourage wildlife. One of the large trees which was not in good order has also been removed by a tree surgeon.
The Committee would propose that benches are placed beside the path at suitable points and would like to extend an invitation to anyone who would like to have a memorial bench placed on the Common Land to approach the secretary with their proposal.

There is no obvious explanation for this although it has given the committee a chance to catch up on a few items (such as outstanding completion certificates) and to consider how to improve the amenity of the common land which the committee is also responsible for.
The committee decided to have a pine tree removed on the common as it showed signs of damage and as such was potentially dangerous. In addition, a number of smaller tasks have been undertaken by committee members to try and improve the area. There is still a lot of work to do but hopefully people will start to notice improvements during the summer which can then be built upon over the coming years.
As the committee hold personal data on residents, a review of how this is held and who has access to it has been carried out to ensure compliance with the new GDPR legislation. As a result, a privacy […]
