New uses for Blackhorse Field (the old football pitch)

Blackhorse Fields (the old football pitch) – Expressions of Interest

Some of you might have noticed that the old pavilion has been removed. The Parish Council is now in a position to consider alternative uses for the old football pitch.

At this stage, the Council does not want to impose any restrictions on what it might be used for so expressions of interest are being sought from anyone who would like to take on a lease for the field.

Please write or email the Parish Clerk with your contact details, the reason why you would want the field and an estimate of the time period that you would want it for (if not permanently).

Please note that water might be available for at an additional cost and that, if any fencing works are required, the Parish Council would expect to negotiate the cost of those works with the prospective tenant. Any temporary buildings required would need the consent of the Parish Council, would be erected at the tenant’s cost and the field would need to be reinstated and any temporary buildings removed on termination.

Once the expressions of interest have been considered the Parish Council will invite tenders from a short list of applicants.

If you are interested please contact Patrick Blosse (Parish Clerk), Catsborough Cottage, Catsborough Cross, Monkleigh, Devon, EX39 5LE by letter or email Closing date for expressions of interest: 31st October 2015.
