Old Dean Recreation Ground update
We are refurbishing the play area at Old Dean Recreation Ground with a new updated facility. Funding has been secured from planning infrastructure contributions and Accent Housing who are also supporting the project.
Thank you to everyone who took part in our consultation on the new Old Dean Play area. The following design has been chosen.
Work on the new play area is expected to start mid-April with a target completion date in June.
We are working closely with the ward councillors, local schools and ODCoG on this scheme, and will post updates on this page as the project progresses.
