GREEN OASIS IN BRIGG TO FOLLOW A NEW PATH
Brigg Town Council is now very close to taking over official control of an area of greenery.
After months of negotiation, the authority is set to lease the Millennium Green between Elwes Street and the Old River Ancholme.
A Year 2000 project established the green, to be managed and maintained by a trust.
The oasis has grass, walks, flowers and public seating. Plus litter bins.
North Lincolnshire Council is assisting in the transfer of the public space to Brigg.
When the Town Council received an update on the transfer at its July meeting, Coun Chris Dyson raised a couple of points.
Firstly, he was assured that an old wooden jetty at the edge of the green had been removed.
Secondly, he wondered whether the lease would permit the installation of public toilets if the council wished to follow that path at some future date.
Coun Rob Waltham suggested that, in the case of buildings, it would be possible to seek a variation in the lease.
