Recreation field security options
The Council is considering a range of options to minimise the chance of further illegal trespass on the recreation field. We recognise that any scheme we follow will be vulnerable. There are no options that will completely avoid trespass. So the objective is to deter trespass rather than to close off the field completely. We are also aware that many residents enjoy and appreciate the open vista created by the current deterrent, and we do not wish to destroy what we set out to protect.
We are also aware that some schemes are very expensive, and ultimately it is you the residents who will pay for any work. That is why we are asking you to consider the options, and to share with us your thoughts.
All options will enable pedestrian access, as well as gated access for ground care vehicles. It is these access points that will become the weakest link.
We will hold a series of meetings in the village centre to share with you the options before a decision is made. There will be a display on Saturday 1st December, from 10.30am till lunchtime. Please look at the options, and let us know your thoughts..
The options are as follows:
- Take no action; rely upon wooden posts already installed.
- Replace wooden posts with robust posts, concreted into ground – £ 12,500
- Plant mixed hawthorn hedge alongside existing wooden posts – £10,000
- Install Hoop and Rail fence – £38,000
- Dig ditch and form soil mound – £15,000

Strategic Site plan
The Parish Council has had initial meetings with the selected development firm, Countryside Properties, appointed by CDC to prepare the Master Plan for the strategic site at Tangmere. It is hoped to be able to hold a public meeting in due course with their team to share the progress on the project. The Council is confident that the developer team will take on board all the infrastructure plans and design layout that features in our Neighbourhood Plan. To support us in this work we have appointed our own professional advisors to support our work, and to ensure the very best outcome for the village.
The Christmas Tree of Memories takes place on 2nd December 2pm-7pm in Tangmere Co-Op car park with Father Christmas, stalls and refreshments; then the traditional pantomime “with a twist” Cinderella is at the Village Centre on December 7th (7.30pm) and 8th (2pm and 7.30pm) .
