We have now submitted a full planning application to site welfare units on the carpark of the BMX track.


We have received 3 quotes for all the required works and are soon to appoint a constructor to carry out the works following favourable planning decision.


We have explored the provision for a renewable energy sourced generator, and following cost consideration and climate issues, we have now come to the conclusion that sourcing energy from the main network on a green tariff would best meet the climate concerns that we are all currently faced with. Although this and other issues have increased the cost to beyond the CIL budget, we have managed to secure additional funding to meet this increase.
