Sedgemoor District Council is considering the disposal of the site of the Bristol Road Playing Fields, Bridgwater which extends to approximately 4.98 hectares.
It is proposed that the land will be transferred to the Bridgwater United Community Sports Trust by way of a 75-year lease in order to convert the existing playing fields into an extensive sports and recreation facility.
There is a legal process to follow.
Firstly, two adverts have to be placed in the local newspaper – Bridgwater Mercury. The adverts are placed for two weeks – 1st March and 8th March to invite members of the public who wish to comment or object to the proposals, in writing by 1700 hrs on 29th March.
There is a copy of the plan and proposals in Bridgwater House.
The proposals and any objections or comments will then form a report which will be debated at an Executive meeting, probably in May.
There would then need to be a planning application submitted by the Bridgwater United Community Sports Trust.
