To achieve the coveted status, the council must prove it has been in use by the community for 20 years for sports and hobbies including football matches, dog walking and children playing.

Residents are being asked to complete a questionnaire to support the application.

The authority is also asking people to send in written statements and take photos of the land in use.

Forms can be completed online by logging on to and hard copies can be picked up from the tithe barn, in Church Lane, or from Number 65, in High Street.
