Warfield Memorial Ground Play Area

We have received updated advice from the HSE concerning the surfaces required under swings and other equipment. As a result, the council will proceed with upgrading the sufaces under the swings and all the play equipment at the earliest opportunity.

Unfortunately this means we have temporarily withdrawn the swings, but they will be reinstated as soon as a new surface is installed. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but we hope you will appreciate that the safety of users has to be our priority.

Warfield Neighbourhood Plan – Pre-Submission Consultation

Warfield Parish Council had planned to carry out the statutory six week consultation on their draft neighbourhood Plan from early May 2017.  With the calling of the General Election to be held on Thursday 8th June 2017, the Parish Council must observe pre-election rules that restrict certain activity during a period of heightened political sensitivity.

Unfortunately this means we have had to defer the consultation period until the conclusion of the General Election campaign.

Quelm Lane Allotment Site – Site Clearance and Fencing

The land adjacent to Quelm Lane and Sopwith Road has been designated as an allotment site as part of the Warfield SPD.  We are pleased to be able to announce that the transfer of the site to the parish is now well under way. Work to clear and fence the site will be starting this week – week beginning 13th March 2017.  This work will be undertaken by our contractor Smallwood Countryside Contractors. They will be asked to ensure that both Watersplash Lane and the road and pavement along Sopwith Road are kept clear of mud, debris and vehicles.

Further work to create the car park, internal pathways and erection of an allotment community building will follow later in the year and will be subject to planning regulations.

We apologise for any inconvenience these works may cause over the coming period. If you have any questions or concerns over the works, please do not hesitate to contact the Parish Office on 01344 457777 or e-mail us info@warfieldparishcouncil.gov.uk.
