The Town Council has adopted the Masterplan for the King George V playing Fields. Along with this plan they have also outlined the groups of works to be carried out in phases as soon as funding for each phase is available.
The following phase has been completed
Phase 1A - due Spring/Summer 2019
- Splashpad Installation
- Trim Trail (Outdoor Gym Equipment)
- Seating Area in front of the Pavilion
The installation of a new path was scheduled for early 2020 but was delayed due to Covid-19, and is due to start work in June 2020.
A new footway is being laid in King George V Park to connect the whole park and provide ease of access to its facilities. Work is to commence on Monday 29th June. The works were scheduled to take place earlier in the year and we apologise we were unable to do so, it was as a result of the Covid-19 restrictions and our contractor being unable to carry out the works. The works will be carried out in sections to minimise disruption to users of the park and we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause for users of KGV. The work is scheduled for completion on 3 August 2020.
The intention is then for the following phases to recommence towards the end of 2020.
- Play Area (Area C as per design)
- Adventure Area (area A as per deisgn)
- New path
- Services for the events/lighting etc.
- Sensory Garden/ Tree Walk (works to begin)
- Nature Trail
- Sports Area
- Car Park
