Park Regeneration Starting November 2011

Discussing Ideas for the Park Restoration

We had our first site meeting with Bellway this morning to agree a plan of action on restoring the Park.  Bellway has said that work will start before the end of November,  and will progress in phases.

Phase 1,  will be to define key paths,  improve the entrances, restore the gates,  and trim back scrub areas.  Phase 2, which will be early in the new year, will involve tree work and laying hedges. We aim to have a much more welcoming park for use by Spring, and especially for The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations over the first weekend in June 2012, and for when activity increases during the Olympics in July/August 2012.

We have tried to plan for all ‘legitimate’ users, of the park:- the dog walkers,  those who want to sit and look at the view,  young families  just enjoying the green space,  children playing or sledging, people taking a walk up to the Chevin,  the runners and exercisers,   and people on their way to school or work.  Let us know what you use the park for in our poll. 

Our thanks must go to all those who have made this possible including Councillor Graham Latty,  and Mark Bray, Technical Director for Bellway.
