Some Background Information


Over the past 7/8 years a considerable amount of consultation has taken
place to ascertain people’s thoughts on how Coxheath might develop in
the future. During this process a key issue emerged relating to the
need/desire to enhance amenity/recreational facilities in the
community. It became evident that Coxheath had well below the
standard in terms of acreage of land for such uses and therfore to
provide any enhancement, additional land would be necessary.
Two local landowners have indicated their willingness to make available
land to the community for amenity/recreational use. In both instances,
landowners would be wishing to achieve an element of new private
housing development to facilitate the gifting of land to the community.
