BURFORD ROAD UPDATE
Other issues that have been sorted out were financial arrangements the setting up of the pitches, the announcement that occasional official spot checks are to be made of the site from time to time to see that the gates are being used properly and no un-authorised club organisations are using the site without payment.
Council officers have agreed to help look for further funding to allow better use of the site.
Lee Richards the current official user of the site will continue to use the site and monitor the Burford Road entrances to encourage parents to use the main entrance in Kingstanding Road to park their cars.
He has also agreed to continue to litter pick the site after his clubs have used it and is happy to discuss with local residents any issues they have with his use of the site.
I feel that the good will shown all round at today meeting meant there has been a step forward and was pleased at the good will shown by those who attended the meeting on site.
The site will continue to be used by local residents and children will certainly continue to be encouraged to use the field for kick about's and other exercise.
PLEASE NOT ANY CLUBS WISHING TO USE THIS SITE NEED TO CONTACT THE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT IN ORDER TO ARRANGE FOR PAYMENT FOR ITS USE.
Also dog walkers please take home your dogs mess
