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, cricket square, tennis court, netball court, 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 parish office maintains the burial register and handles the day to day administration.

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 County Council and East Dorset District Council is vital as they are the authorities responsible for road maintenance, parking, public footpaths and maintenance of grass verges. The committee advises the County Council on footpaths and rights of way issues as they impact on our village. The committee also liaise with the relevant authorities who deal with flooding issues. Finally the committee oversees the plans for the Christmas lights.
