* Watson Park, situated on the corner of Magdalen Lane and Station Lane, is now in the ownership of the Hedon Town Council and is to be left as amenity land for the town. Its upkeep is obviously the responsibility of the Town Council - part of it is to be left wild and the rest of the area will be rough cut. As some trees have had to be felled, a planting programme is in place.
