Charfield Parish Council, as the Custodian Trustee of the old Village Hall Charity held Title to the land that comprises the Village Hall and Playing Fields. The old Charity has now converted to a new Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) and as such is able to hold the Title documents itself. The Parish Council has received a lawful instruction from the CIO requesting such a transfer. The Village Hall & Playing Fields will continue to be run and managed by the new CIO Trustees – this exercise is simply a legal transfer of the Title documents. Therefore, in accordance with the Local Government Act 1972, S.123 a Public Notice will appear in the March 2021 edition of the Wotton Times advising residents of Charfield Parish Council’s plans to ‘dispose’ of land within the parish. Charfield Parish Council will continue to be an appointed Trustee of the new CIO. Anyone with any queries should contact the Clerk.
