Landscape works to prevent unauthorised access
The Borough Council will be undertaking various landscape works to try and deter unauthorised access at both Arley and Mancetter Recreation Grounds - see examples of proposed works and map of the proposed locations. This is in response to the travellers who accessed both Recreation Grounds last year and also in previous years. During the latest incursions, there was some disruption to services, as well as waste and rubbish left at both sites.
Mancetter Recreation Grounds
Works will comprise a combination of ditch and mound formation, installation of steel knee railing, timber fencing, bollards and height restriction barriers with gates.
The appointed contractor is RMF Landscaping Limited, who have now started work on site at Mancetter Recreation Ground. Weather permitting, the works will take a few weeks to complete and finish in early March 2019.
Arley Recreation Ground
Works will comprise a combination of ditch and mound formation, installation of steel knee railing, bollards and height restriction barrier with gate.
RMF Landscaping Limited hope to start the works on site at Arley Recreation Ground around the Monday 11th March and weather permitting, the works will take approximately three weeks to complete.
The construction works are highly likely to cause some disruption and when complete will still appear to be unfinished, with soil being exposed until the grass has had time to establish. Both sites will remain publicly accessible during the works.
