Moulton residents asked for views on latest park plan

Moulton residents are being asked for their views on the latest plans for a long-awaited play and picnic area for the village.

South Holland District Council has ear-marked £88,000 towards the development in its budget for the 2022/23 financial year.

The current plan is for Moulton Parish Council to lease an acre of Moulton Park, off Bell Lane.

A parish council spokesman said: “As part of the ongoing process, the parish council needs to engage with the residents of Moulton village ward to seek the level of support for a play and picnic area within the village and Moulton Park.

“This will be done by way of a short survey which will be delivered to properties in the ward, and residents being asked to complete and return it to Moulton Stores and Post Office by Thursday, January 27.

“The results of the survey will be announced early February, and if positive, the parish council will continue its discussions with the district council.”

In March 2020, the district council announced plans to give 23 acres of land it bought in 2016 in order to create a country park complete with green burial site and parkland trail.

However, it was due to be funded by the building of ‘six to ten’ homes on part of the site, something that angered nearby residents and led to a petition being set up by Moulton resident John Grimwood calling for no development on the area.

The district council announced it was pausing its plans for the park shortly after before a scaled back proposal was revealed last August.
