The landowners also set up the dog exercise areas next to this to help divert people away from the more sensitive heathland habitats.

Alongside Bearwood Primary School the field has recently been fenced off and initial works are commencing for the development of 45 new houses and flats with a children's play area. Ward councillors Cllr Richard Burton, Cllr David Brown and Cllr Marcus Andrews spoke against this development at the Planning Committee in January as there were aspects we weren't happy with. Planning permission was granted, but we were successful in getting some improvements before it was approved. There will be 13 affordable rented homes and 5 shared ownership homes as well as 27 homes for sale.
