I’m delighted to confirm that I have just signed off on an investment of £495,000 in Fox Hollies Park. This will see both play areas refreshed and replaced, with the larger one at the Gospel Lane end moved a bit further up the hill and kitted out with the latest play equipment. There’ll be new play surfaces, fencing, paths and benches and even a bit of extra equipment for the skate park on the other side of the road.
This is part of a rolling scheme of investment using money secured from developers around the area. We’ve done this in close consultation with local residents and we’ve listened to you about priorities. You asked for more secure fencing around the park, so we did that first. Improving the play areas was the next step, so now that the money has become available, we’re getting on with the work.
We should start work in March 2022 and complete during that summer, making this great park even better for all those who live around it and use it.
