The additional works to replace the planting and top soil on the village green are now scheduled to complete in September 2019.
We acknowledge that the previously communicated completion date was stated as the end of June 2019. However, the agreed landscape design is based on heathland plants that keep the natural ecology of the area, which requires a very specific type of subsoil and topsoil. Unfortunately, it has taken longer than anticipated to find the right soil quality as proposed suppliers have not met the required quality tests. This has resulted in a delay in the completion of these works. The quality of soil we require will ensure the long-term survival of the planting and provide a high quality, sustainable village green for the community.
We have now contracted a supplier that can provide the right quality of soil and the works are continuing. We can confirm that the paths and play areas in the village green will open in September 2019. The green areas will then open when the planting and grass has established and started to grow. A date will be confirmed in due course.
