Bench Maintenance

We have responsibility for the maintenance of seats and benches on public open spaces across the parish.

Occasionally, the council receives requests from members of the public who wish to place a memorial bench within a public open space .

These are often places with which individuals or families have a particular connection or special relationship. There is no legislative requirement for the provision of public or memorial benches although it is accepted that they provide a useful and valued public amenity.

Anyone wishing to place a memorial bench on a public space should contact the Town Clerk in the first instance.
