Kingsley Parish Council has agreed to facilitate the installation of an all-access mobility path at the heart of the community. The path will be of solid construction, and there will be additional planting, seating, and wildlife habitats. The Council has been offered in principle to take a lease on the land. We are currently waiting for the lease to be drawn up and formally agreed. No funds will be transferred to the project until this has been completed. This project will convert an underused public space from a grassed area with an overgrown hedge, to a welcoming gateway with improved appearance and opportunities for residents to interact. The pathway will ensure easy access to and from the Community Centre for all users. This should encourage people of all ages to enjoy the benefits of the facility as well as improving access to the Co Op and Hollow Lane for residents travelling on foot from Smithy Lane and surrounding roads.

What we'll deliver:

  • To engage local residents in the planning and development of the accessible pathway.
  • Improve planting, giving consideration to nearby bird boxes and wildlife habitats.
  • Install a new bench.

Why it's a great idea:

This project will benefit all of our residents and visitors alike, in particular those with mobility challenges, to enter and exit the Community Centre safely. Whilst there is a pathway near to the school, it often becomes muddy and a hazard to all users. All works will be undertaken in keeping with a sense of place, and where possible we will use local contractors. The project will help the community by improving access and well-being, encouraging residents to move more easily around the village; increase opportunities for engagement in activities and social inclusion. With additional planting, and improvements to wildlife habitats, the project will provide opportunities to learn about nature; and an opportunity for residents to gather on a new 'talking bench' which will aim to combat loneliness by creating a safe space for conversations to happen.

Steps to get it done:

  • Excavating the bed for the ramp.
  • Installing the supporting wall and laying the tarmac.
  • Planting.
  • Installing the bench,
