Civil Service Sports Ground Acquisition
The Council is moving to compulsorily purchase the Civil Service Sports Ground in Freemantle. The decision was taken by the Conservative Cabinet on Monday and marks a concrete step towards bringing the former sports field into public ownership. It has been a long standing ambition of mine to return the land to community use. I am hopeful that within the next year it will be owned by the City Council and open to use by local people and schools in the area.
