We would like to apologise to all the users of the memorial ground who have missed the opportunity to play on the swings over the summer.
We have now appointed a contractor who will begin work on site shortly to upgrade all of the surfaces under the play equipment.
A start date will be published shortly.
The Warfield Neighbourhood Plan pre submission consultation has now closed. Thank you to everyone who submitted a response during the consultation period.
The Council will now review all of the comments received ahead of producing the final plan.
Please watch the Parish Council website for further updates in the coming weeks.
You are invited to review and comment on the draft version of the Warfield Neighbourhood Plan.
This is your first opportunity to comment on the plan and your feedback will be taken into account ahead of the formal submission to Bracknell Forest Council of the final plan. There will be a further opportunity to comment at this stage on the final plan.
The consultation will run from Wednesday 21 June until 5.00 pm Friday 8 September. For more details please click here to view our Neighbourhood Plan page.
Save the date for these two great family events:-
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Unfortunately this means we have temporarily withdrawn the swings, but they will be reinstated as soon as a new surface is installed.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 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.
Following the recent ‘notice of vacancy’ for the Whitegrove Ward of Warfield Parish Council, no requests were received by the Returning Officer at Bracknell Forest Council to fill these two vacancies. The Parish Council is therefore required to fill the vacancies by co-option. This will take place at the council meeting on Wednesday 17 May 2017 at the Parish Office.
Anyone interested in applying should complete the nomination form and apply to the Clerk in writing on or before 12 noon on Friday 5 May 2017. Applicants are advised to contact the Clerk ahead of making an application for more information and to confirm their eligibility to stand.
Please see the attached nomination form regarding eligibility and the ‘The good councillor’s guide’ which explain more about the role of a parish councillor.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
