Westgate Now has a Town/Village Green
At a packed public meeting of the Kent County Council Commons Registration Committee at the Swan Hotel Westgate on 3rd June 2014 the result of the Public Enquiry recommending registration of land adjacent to Ursuline Drive Westgate as a Village/Town Green was discussed.
Representations were made on behalf of the landowners (King Ethelbert's School) and the applicant.
The decision of the Committee was that the Inspector's recommendation be accepted and the land should be formally registered as a Town Green. This means that this field is protected and ensures the continued use by local residents as an area for leisure and recreation.
