Harborough District Council says it has agreed, in principle, to accept an offer from Great Bowden Parish Council to purchase the village’s recreation ground.

Last Monday, April 4, Harborough District Council’s executive committee declared the land, in Great Bowden Road, surplus to requirements and agreed, in principle, that an offer from Great Bowden Parish Council to buy the land from the district council should be accepted subject to a public consultation.

The recreation ground is a central part of the village with a well equipped playground for children as well as fitness apparatus.

The matter was discussed at the council meeting but, at the time, the public was exempted from that portion of the meeting.
