School Lane Recreation will probably be closed for 2013
Sadly Iwade Parish Council has to vacate School Lane Playing Field on 31st December 2012. The Council in the past has leased the field from the landowner, but he has since sold the site to Hillreed Homes; and it now forms part of the ‘Land at Coleshall Farm’ development.

Approximately two years ago the Parish Council were informed that the land had been sold and they needed to vacate, but this has been delayed by Hillreed permitting its continued use by Villagers on a temporary basis, until such time as they need to close it on health and safety grounds because of the surrounding building work.

Once development is complete (unless the new owners Persimmon amend the current plans) the field will be re-opened, at that time the field and the new pavilion will pass into the ownership of Swale Borough Council as per the Section 106 Agreement.

If you know of anyone who would be interested in the play equipment (the school has expressed an interest) then contact the Parish Clerk Lynda Fisher at
