Mancetter Recreation Grounds

Landscape Works at Mancetter Recreation Grounds to try and 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. 

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 hope to be starting the works on site at Mancetter Recreation Ground on 18th February. Weather permitting, the works will take a few weeks to complete at Mancetter from 18th February to early March 2019.

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.

If you require any further information please call Katherine Webster, Green Space Officer  01827 719492 or email
