 Thank you to everyone who contributed towards the consultation on the future of the pavilion at Gallowstree Common by sending in their comments, questions and concerns.

 We received a huge number of responses which included over 200 individual points and questions. It is clear from the responses we have received in writing, as well as the input given at the public meeting, that there are a range of views regarding the past, present and future use of the pavilion and recreation ground and also the relationship between KEPC and KECC. It is also acknowledged that most residents feel ill-informed regarding the historic and current financial situation and the contributions made by KEPC and KECC towards the fixed and variable costs associated with the pavilion and grounds.

The majority view however is that the pavilion and recreation ground are wonderful community assets that should be enjoyed by everyone. It is this shared objective of safeguarding these facilities that we will be keeping front of mind over the coming months as we work to put an agreement in place with KECC.
