Re-opening of Community Woodland site

The Town Council are pleased to confirm that the Community Woodland site has now re-opened and we are moving along with our longer-term plans for use of the site including opportunities for use as an outdoor learning classroom. The grant funding works for installation of the limestone circle, picnic benches and monoliths were completed during April 2021, but in light of a local parishioners very publicly raised concerns about the site and its safety with particular reference to the presence of asbestos, the Council closed the site pending further investigations and the commissioning of a contaminated land survey. Whilst such a survey was recommended in an original landscape masterplan commissioned back in 2016 when the Town Council's concept & vision for development of the site was in it's infancy but not followed through at that time based on it's discussions with and knowledge and experience of the Community Woodland Steering Group Members, in light of these recent accusations levelled at the Town Council, it decided to commission a detailed contamination report in order to ensure that all concerns were being properly addressed given its intentions for widescale community use of the site as a valuable local greenspace in the village.

In this regard, G&M Consulting, regional Soil Experts were commissioned and undertook an initial desk top survey followed by an intrusive phase 2 ground contamination survey during May and June and the respective reports and findings are set out below for public scrutiny together with a site management plan with regard regular ongoing inspections of the site, including appropriate staff training. The commissioning of these reports have had to be met from the Council's reserves as no specific budget was in place and the costs inclusive of VAT equating to almost £6000 of taxpayers money. Both reports and the ongoing site management plan have been fully endorsed by Doncaster Council's Senior Pollution Control Officer, as the local regulatory authority.

The Town Council are now pleased to have gained the re-assurance in relation to the these safety concerns and as a consequence that the site has re-opened and can be used and enjoyed by the local community and that it can press ahead with it's ongoing vision for it's use and development » Less
