What does it do?

The Committee is the custodian and managing body of the various areas of land in the Council’s ownership, principally Pangbourne Meadow, together with the recreation grounds and facilities, allotments, the cemetery and other green spaces in our community.

It therefore ensures the regular care and maintenance of this land, including the safety of all recreational equipment and facilities. The Committee also seeks to discourage anti-social behaviour, litter and other problems which adversely affect the quality of life in our community. The Council currently participates in the Neighbourhood Wardens scheme to help deal with these issues on the ground.

Where land is held for cultivation under tenancy from the Council, the Committee ensures that the terms of tenancy agreements are observed and that rents are reviewed annually. Any resident wishing to take an allotment tenancy should contact the Clerk to the Council.
