  1. In 2010, local people created the community orchard after a campaign to get the Council to support a community orchard on the site.

    The Friends of Highfields Community Orchard had permission from the Council in 2012 but this has not been renewed.

    A planning application for housing was submitted by the Council in 2013. This has been amended following local objections, but has not been decided

    Newsome Ward Councillors have offered their capital budget to buy the orchard site for the community. No decision has been taken as yet (February 2014).
