PUBLIC CONSULTATION – PLAYGROUND AND TENNIS COURTS IMPROVEMENTS

 

The Council is consulting on phase 2 of the Shakespeare Park improvements, to the Playground and Tennis Courts.  

 

Renovation of the playground equipment will include the installation of low maintenance mulch safety surfaces and new play equipment including the provision of new sensory play equipment, which enables children with special needs to enjoy the playground and park with their friends and siblings.   

Improvements to the tennis courts will include the nets and net sockets, surface, markings, gates and perimeter netting in order for the courts to be attractive for a club and for tennis training, as well as for casual play by local residents.

TENNIS COURTS SCHEDULE OF IMPROVEMENTS

In order to undertake improvement works to the site with minimum disruption to residents, a secure compound will be needed for the site construction vehicles and materials. The proposal is to close the Tennis Courts for approximately 12 months for this purpose.

Once the works on the New Pavilion (Clubhouse) are complete, the old Clubhouse demolished and the car park improved and extended, the secure compound will be closed and the Tennis Courts will be improved.

The proposal is to improve the surface, perimeter fencing and nets, similar to the example shown in the picture below.
