This project was funded on 22 Sep 2020!

Situated on the site of a former local authority waste collection site now the responsibility of the local Brampton Cricket Club the planned development area has long been overgrown and neglected. Nearly an acre in size there has been longstanding community demand for increased greenspace facilities in the area. The proposed development will see it brought into community use as allotments and general greenspace whilst retaining the character already present. The site will have a reinstated car park, pathway through previously wet and difficult ground as well as benches and tables for persons to enjoy the peace and tranquillity the area offers. The planned improvements will enable local people to access and enjoy an area previously inaccessible to most. Improved dynamic uses of the site will hopefully reduce crime and anti social in the area whilst offering intergenerational learning opportunities for all who wish it. The site will be a place of activity and relaxation in equal measures

What we'll deliver:

  • Plant 10 trees
  • Provide 4 picnic benches
  • Provide 4 benches
  • Reinstate car park
  • Create 40 allotment plots
  • Manage a previously negected area of land

Why it's a great idea:

Improved access encouraging visitors both local and from further afield. Increased facilities providing an outlet for physical and outdoor activity. Improved appearance of area around site. Increased capacity for offering cricket to a wider audience.

Steps to get it done:

  • Project completion

The club has been hit hard by Covid 19 and has struggled to retain its membership. It has however continued to expand its community engagement and reach to include non cricket interests as it seeks to offer something different in the area.
