The Green Contents
In 2002, the newly-constituted Lindal and Marton Residents' Association held
public consultations to identify issues that they might tackle in order to
improve the local environment. It was agreed by the Residents' Association in
June 2002 "that the area surrounding the
Lindal War Memorial was entirely unworthy with uncoordinated fencing, grit and
litter bins, phone box, telegraph pole and plastic flower troughs". An architect was engaged to assess
The Green and propose an improvement scheme.
After a great deal of controversy, residents of Lindal and Marton were asked
in March 2005 to vote on which, if any, of five improvement options they would
like to see progressed. Residents voted in favour of a basic scheme to replace
the existing railings and gates.
The War Memorial was repaired and cleaned in November 2005.
The railings and gates were replaced and new seating provided during 2007.
