The Leader of the Council – Regeneration Cabinet Member – Minutes – 28 February 2013

39        (20) VOLUNTARY DESIGNATION OF A VILLAGE GREEN OFF STATION ROAD, BRIGG – The Director of Places submitted a report which sought approval to voluntarily designate land known as ‘The Paddock’, as a village green, to accept the withdrawal of two other applications to register as village greens lodged at the same time as ‘The Paddock’ and sought approval to create a public footpath.

The report outlined that the Council had received three applications to register land as village greens in 2010 which were related to land known as ‘The Paddock’ (Appendix 1 to the report), ‘The Old Coal Yard’ (Appendix 2), and ‘The Old Railway Sidings’ (Appendix 3) off Station Road, Brigg.

In October 2010, the former Cabinet Member for Regeneration, Marketing and Strategic Finance had agreed that the Council should formally object to the application in relation to ‘The Paddock’ its capacity as landowner (minute 106 of 4 October 2010 refers).

It was now explained that based on the assumption that the Council would withdraw its objection to the registration of ‘The Paddock’, as a village green, the applicant had agreed in writing to withdraw the remaining applications.

Details of the options available were outlined within the report.

Resolved – (a)  That the application to voluntarily register The Paddock as a green be accepted,; (b)  that the withdrawal of the two remaining applications be accepted, and (c)that a public footpath as indicated in Appendix 4 to the report be dedicated.
