The Landscape Practice officer who is dealing with the approval required for funding to be allocated for the Glenmead scheme has advised me this has now been obtained and a code has been allocated. (a job number?)
The Local Parks Manager will now instruct the contractor to undertake the required works and will advise us when they are due to commence and the when the track will be available for use.
I have asked the Officer responsible for the field to liaise with a well known local team as there is a possibility the playing field will be hired out for football.
I have asked that it be arranged for the proposed running track to be laid out in such a way that if an adult football pitch and 1 mini soccer pitch are required there is sufficient space to do so without affecting the track.
I would like to assure all concerned residents that all 3 Oscott Councillors Councillor Barbara Dring, Tristan Chatfield as well as myself are doing what we can to get this frustration situation dealt with as soon as possible,
