Wakefield Council are handing over ownership of Frickley Country Park to a charitable trust.

Notices have been placed around the park notifying members of the public and to allow for people to make any objections.

In October 2008, cabinet members agreed that three former coalfield sites should be transferred to the Land Trust, a charity which manages green open spaces on behalf of and with local communities.

Sarah Pearson, service director for economic growth and housing, said: “The transfer will ensure that the site will remain as a public space in the long term. The site notices relate to the legal requirement to advertise the proposed disposal of public open space and allow the public to make any objections.”

To make an objection, write to the Service Manger Property and Asset Management, (ref: PM/DG), Corporate Services, County Hall, Wakefield, WF1 2QW.

Objections must be received by February 10.
