Environment Committee

This committee is responsible for the development and maintenance of the Fryer Field area. The facilities include football pitches, adult and children's, artificial grass 5-a-side football pitch, tennis courts, basketball court, children's play area, skatepark, BMX track and the pavilion. A second children's play area is located adjacent to Oakhurst First School.

The committee also oversees the management of the West Moors Cemetery located in Priory Road. The council office maintains the burial register and handles the day to day administration.
They also oversee the administration of the allotments which are located at Gullivers Farm.

The committee also deals with any matters relating to street furniture such as benches and a few council owned bus shelters as well as representing the views of residents who raise concerns about highway matters, such as speeding, parking, street lighting and road safety. In many of these areas close co-operation with Dorset Council is vital as they are the authority responsible for road maintenance, parking, public footpaths and maintenance of grass verges. The committee advises the Dorset Council on footpaths and rights of way issues as they impact on our community. The committee also liaise with the relevant authorities who deal with flooding issues. Finally the committee oversees the plans for the Christmas lights.
