Small field - new open space for Grampound

Picture of field

The lease has now been exchanged with the landowner and Grampound with Creed Parish Council has taken over management of an area of open space adjoining the Tannery development. The field has been used in the past as agricultural land and we will now need to apply for planning for a 'change of use' to use it as an open space. The plan is to consider adding a few trees to the space and some furniture. Ideas would be most welcome.

Bus Shelter electronic sign installed
