Clarification of the status of the Priory Pond within the Nature Reserve. 21/4/2012.

The Map section shows area 3, The Priory Pond; and area 5, the privately owned small holding; We queried the current status of the Priory Pond with the council. A Council spokesman explained that with reference to area 3 "we continue to own Priory Pond and have no particular proposals for it" he went on to say " I think the plan is just a configuration issue so that it does not otherwise leave an adjoining private piece of land (area 5) within the park"

Pressed further as to whether it was in the reserve or not he said "It is not formally inside but for all practical day to day purposes we will regard it as within the maintained Park area"
