Our plans for Marley Hill
Marley Hill Community Centre, of which I am a trustee and member of the management committee, has a large amount of unused land on two sides of it. My plan is to turn it into a community garden and allotments. We have used some of the Local Community Fund, a small fund which councillors can use to support community activities, to draw up a feasibility study. There will be public consultation in the months ahead. There are restrictions on what we can do on the land as it is in greenbelt but we are working with the planners on this.
I took these photos on Tuesday after a meeting of the Marley Hill management committee where I explained to members where we are with the plans. There is still a long way to go but the wheels are starting to turn.
