No plans to sell land at Bull Meadow Park, Council reveals

A proposal to sell part of a city park to create access for vehicles at a proposed new housing development is set to be ruled out by the City Council.

 Exeter Homes Trust had requested that the council sells a section of Bull Meadow Park to create a turning point for cars to access new homes as part of the proposed £9m redevelopment of Fairpark Almshouses.

 The Council previously announced it was considering a request to sell the freehold of 130 square metres of land to the developer, subject to a successful planning application for the development at the bottom of Magdalen Road, overlooking Bull Meadow Park.

 But Council Leader Phil Bialyk said he wanted to keep the current open green space after carefully considering representations from residents and councillors.
