How will it benefit the local community?

  • The issues of unauthorised and antisocial uses on the site will be eliminated, creating a safer and more pleasant environment for all, accessible to the general public for the first time.
  • The new park will be a fantastic facility for everyone.
  • Alongside the new park we plan to enhance the existing council sports and recreational facilities.
  • The public transport, EV charging points, cycle, pedestrian and road improvements will make sustainable healthy travel easier for everyone.
  • New homes of all kinds of affordability and tenure will meet local needs.
  • It will bring opportunities to a part of the Borough which has been neglected in many ways in recent decades.
