Southbourne's "Green Ring"

Southbourne Green Ring Partnership

Southbourne Parish Council have been granted funding for a feasibility study to assess the devel-
opment of a continuous footpath to the north of 4140111 the 'Green Ring'. The concept for this fantastic the village as a first step towards implementing new amenity was a result of discussions during  the production of our Neighbourhood Plan and we want to try to progress it whatever the outcome of the Referendum vote on the Plan. We are pleased that with the grant from Community Ownership and Management of Assets (COMA) we can start immediately.

In the long term this is not just a footpath around the village. The intention is to have nature observation, recording and photographic areas; activity and children's play stations; seating with disabled and wheel chair access areas, etc. There are many existing footpaths and we aim to join
them up, making an interesting area safeguarding a green space to the north of the A259. All this is going to take some time and it will be an ongoing project, so we need many people to get involved.

If you are interest- ed or would like to know more please do get in touch:
Parish Councillors Bill Ferguson (
and Jonathan Brown or via the Clerk to the Council
( or telephone 01243 373 667.
