Simon Harris to agree a deal with Shropshire Council
Simon Harris has a proven track record of getting assets transferred to Broseley.
Below are a few things he has done to better Broseley:
* The libaray has had £40,000 of modifications allowing offices to be moved, including new flooring and heating/air con
* The library car park has had a complete resurface with lines to incorporate the friendly bus parking
* There’s now an area for cars to unload their recycling to the units
* Successfully negotiated the transfer of 2 open spaces; Guest Road and the Maypole green
Simon has a track record in getting the right deal, at the right time for Broseley and it’s people.
Certain offers have been made in regards to the drainage problem which need finalising. To do this he's asked for a years grace, so Shropshire Council can find the paperwork and allow BTC and BMPMC to organise themselves.
This petition is to give Simon Harris the support to carry out negotiation with Shropshire Council in regards to the Birch Meadow Park.
A little bit about the birch
In 1937 the Birchmeadow was gifted to the people of Broseley as an area for free recreation.
Lat/Long: 52.615692, -2.4814466
Birchmeadow Playing Field Site is a 5.3-hectare (13-acre) recreational area in Broseley, England, consisting of a mixture of woodland, play area, and a football pitch. It was also one of the first places where a wooden railway was built. The site is protected by Fields in Trust through a legal "Deed of Dedication" safeguarding the future of the space as public recreation land for future generations to enjoy.
In November 2009 the Birchmeadow Park Management Committee was awarded £115,000 from various grant bodies to improve the park. The grant was spent on a new woodland path, an archway, the resurfacing of the car park, and a new play facility on the site. The park is continuing to be developed and future projects include increasing woodland management, improving the football pitches, improving the changing rooms, and enhancing the landscaping of the park.
