Community Land Now Ours

It is with great pleasure that we can announce that the 15.5 acres of land at the corner of Old Road South and Pixham Ferry Lane has today been signed over to us by Taylor Wimpey. The Land Transfer Document was signed by Kempsey Parish Council last Thursday and now completed by TW.

The land is designated to be the location for a new Community Centre, Sports Pitches, and a Skateboard/BMX Park. Preliminary designs for the projects will now be produced and put out for community consultation. You may see that Taylor Wimpey still have contractors on the land, but this essential and beneficial work is being carried out under licence from KPC and will be concluded as soon as possible.

Our Clerk, Mrs Sharon Baxter, signing the Land Transfer Document on behalf of Kempsey Parish Council
