Council: Reverse Decision to Declare Land at Compass Close Surplus

16 September 2004

Motion

Councillor Murray has submitted the following:

Following Medway council's decision on 23 October 2003 to declare the eight acres of land known as Compass Close (Copperfields) surplus to requirements, there has been significant public opposition to the sale.

In light of this opposition and also the land's high value to the community as an urban green space, council is again asked to reverse its decision, and retain the land for further development as a public open space and biodiversity area.

On being put to the vote, the motion was lost.

The Local Government Boundary Commission for England are currently reviewing Medway's ward boundaries. The new boundaries are expected to increase the number of councillors in Medway from 55 to 59 and will be introduced for the next elections to Medway council in 2023. They have launched a public consultation for residents and organisations in Medway to help them decide where the boundaries should be drawn. The consultation is open until 2 March 2020, with draft recommendations due to be published in June 2020.
