The Village Green

On 2 July 2019, Leigh Parish Council (LPC) completed the purchase of a 99 year lease on the 4.03 acre field to the west of the Leigh Village Hall, in order to establish a c.2 acre Village Green (with the remaining 2 acres being left as agricultural land).   The establishment of the Green now secures the area as an open space for future generations that anyone can use for short term occasional activities such as village events, picnics, informal family games and other such activities that families without access to a suitable garden might otherwise not be able to enjoy.

The addition of the Village Green, adjacent to the existing Village Hall and recently re-sited and
refurbished Playpark, now collectively provides a trio of facilities that act as a mutually supporting hub at the centre of the village, enhancing the community.

The following documents detail the business plan for this purchase along with all of the supporting documentation required.
