    Our Town Council has quoted an 1875 Act of Parliament(see below) which stops them leasing land to us to build a men’s shed on. Do you know of any Council that has leased land for this purpose so that we can quote precedent ? There is unused land available.

    ” Public health Act 1875 s 164 (Local Government Act 1972 schedule 14 para 27)
    ‘Power to acquire land or provide recreation grounds, public walks, pleasure grounds
    and open spaces and to manage and control them’
    You mentioned other Councils have provide buildings for men’s sheds could you please let
    Me know who they are so I can investigate
    Town Clerk,
    New Alresford Town Council ”
