We are proposing to spend £400,000 to enhance the recreational facilities in the Holmcroft Area.
In 2018 we carried out a public consultation to seek the opinions of local residents, parents and pupils of local schools about the planned enhancements of the open space at Holmcroft. Nearly 400 responses were received from adults and children.
You told us that you wanted to see improvements to the toddler and junior play areas together with new outdoor gym equipment and skatepark facility. We appointed Landscape Architects, Red Kite, to draw up a concept proposal based on the consultation results and the plans include:
- New equipped play equipment areas for younger and older children;
- A new concrete wheeled sports facility;
- Natural play features including boulders and landscape features;
- Refurbished tennis courts for ball sports;
- The creation of new footpaths to form a circular route around the park;
- Seating and picnic areas.
The deadline for return of the survey is 16 September 2019.
You can also come and chat to our team at one of our open drop-in sessions:

We look forward to hearing from you.
