The Goat Walk Land Trust

The Goat Walk Land is six acres of land bordering The Goat Walk and Bowling Green Lane on the downstream side of Topsham. The Goat Walk Land Trust was formed to protect the land and retain it for the benefit of the community after a successful appeal and bid for the land in February 2015.

The Trust is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation, registered in 2015, whose object is: 

“the maintenance of the rural environment and heritage of the historic town of Topsham through the preservation and enhancement, without any permanent buildings, of the Goat Walk land for the quiet enjoyment and pleasure of the residents of Topsham and visiting members of the public at large”

Since the establishment of the Trust, the Trustees and Management Committee have been looking at possible ways to manage the land.  These were presented in an exhibition and consultation on 16 April at the Matthews Hall in Topsham. 

If you were unable to visit the exhibition, the posters are displayed here.  Please look at them, and respond to the questionnaire .  The results of the questionnaire will inform decisions on how to manage the land.  The deadline for responding to the questionnaire is 15 May 2016.
