Haslington Village Green Vehicle Barrier – Local Survey

The survey is now closed.

Thank you to all who participated. We are now wading through the submissions and will publish the results soon.

The parish council are investigating ways to prevent unauthorised vehicle access onto the village green. There are various options and in order to help in our selection we have prepared a short questionnaire to gather your views and preferences regarding the type of fencing or barriers to be installed.

  • The illustrations are just typical of the category – the final design is yet to be determined.

Whichever option is selected, our intention is only to prevent unauthorised vehicle access, the Parish Council will ensure that the final design not only allows suitable controlled access for maintenance vehicles but also provides access for pedestrians to freely use and enjoying the open space.
We are considering four categories as follows:

Category 1 – Cheshire Fencing

A traditional favourite on Cheshire farms and countryside, Cheshire fencing with its black and white painted metal sections could form a feature with a ‘local’ theme. It would be over 1metre high with access gaps for pedestrians.



Category 2 – Knee Rails

As the name suggests these are typically about knee height with horizontal rails connecting low posts. There are several designs available with timber or metal options.


Category 3 – Hoop barriers



Durable and long lasting. Cost effective.



Category 4 – Bollards

The fourth option is simple bollards. These could range from knee to waist height and be made from metal, wood, natural stone or decorative moulded concrete.





Regarding the illustrations: Please note that there are many other material/design options than those shown above. The purpose of this survey is simply to help us determine the basic category. Our next stage will be to explore in more detail the various options within that category, taking account of initial cost, lifespan, maintenance and of course appearance.
