We have developed the first part of the space on one side of the road with a surfaced basket ball area and an informal ball kickabout area. The area left to develop is where 8 houses which were demolished in 2014 due to repeated flooding. We have the money including a grant from Drax to do the earthworks to create landscaped low lying grass areas to hold any future water until it disperses naturally and create higher areas with a path, but we don't have any money for play equipment or its installation.
We are a group of 8 residents on a committee raising funds. Public funding streams are getting harder to come by and we want to see this space as a positive place for us and the surrounding community after the difficult time we have been through.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The children on the estate have all said they want this and are regularly using the informal kickabout space that has already been completed. We had a pictorial questionnaire for children last year to get their views on what ideas they liked for the space.
We want a nice place people can go outside to meet.
This project is about a posiitive outcome for our community which has gone through repeated flooding, fear of flooding and some houses being demolished.
There is an old persons housing complex 75 yards away and they would like to use the seating area.
People from the surrounding roads tell us it would be a good to have a nice place to come and sit other than the cemetery with its benches and flowers or the river bank which is a long walk.
What we create will be publicly accessible for everyone - a local green space.
Steps to get it done:
