Last December Brentor village residents were invited to fill in a survey asking for comments and suggestions for the future of the Brentor playing field.
Disappointingly, only 20 responses were received. The results of the survey were as follows:
50% asked for the field to have more of a community feel with seating, barbeque and toilets installed
35% suggested relocating the field closer to the village hall (if possible)
5% suggested selling the land for affordable housing
5% suggested leaving it as it is
5% wanting the committee to decide.
Over the last few months this has led to some lengthy deliberations by the committee, to discuss the way forward based on the results.
What happens next?
Based on the results, the committee has been looking at external shelters, compost toilets and seating to enable it to take things forward. It will require some fundraising and looking into grants available.
How can you help?
