New Disabled parking spaces completed

Work has been completed on the provision of 5 new parking spaces at the Community Centre. The spaces, 3 of which are reserved for disabled drivers, have been partly funded by a grant from Borough Councillors Hugo Deynam and John Leather, with the balance coming from Community Centre funds.The work was carried out in three days and cost £6834.00 with £3609.00 from the Councillors fund
The new parking area replaces a rather scruffy piece of planting that had become increasingly unattractive and more difficult to manage.
Community Centre Chairman Alan Wilkinson said "The area of planting did little to enhance the Centre and there is often pressure on the parking facilities. The spaces are well placed for our disabled users and we are very grateful to our Borough Councillors for dipping into their local grant fund to help provide this"
The cycle racks have also been placed nearer the main entrance.

The work forms part of on-going plans to upgrade the facilities of the Community Centre.
"Though the signing of the new lease is taking longer than we anticipated" said Alan "once the ink is dry on the paper we can really get going on the improvements"
