We are delighted that the local charity who owned the land at the end of the Recreation Ground which has historically been used for the play area and half the football pitch is finally in a legal position which enables them to dispose of this parcel of land to the Parish Council. The council is most grateful to Aylesbury Vale District Council for their support with this initiative and a release of Section 106 funding to facilitate the purchase of the land.
Now that the land is within the council’s ownership, we can progress with the removal of the old play equipment and installation of the new, challenging play space. At the point of writing, we are finalising details with the supplier and waiting for them to confirm an installation date. This is likely to be early in 2020 once the worst of the weather is behind us. We will keep residents advised of progress.
Once the play space details have been confirmed, the council will be able to commence procurement of the long- awaited concrete skate park. Look out for more updates in due course.
