Green space improvement is a walk in the park
Dudley Council has approved a £40k spend to help make Amblecote Recreational Ground more accessible.
Work to the popular green space, located off School Drive, will be undertaken using section 106 money, which comes from local developers.
Paths will be improved to make the space buggy and wheelchair friendly and easier for people to walk and cycle around. There will be a new woodland stone footpath from the park’s Trinity Road entrance as well as new timber edged steps.
Overhanging trees will be trimmed and the woodland area will also be tidied to help make the space more visitor friendly. Work is expected to start in March.
Councillor John Martin, Cabinet Member for Highways and Environment said:
Section 106 money, which comes from developers who are undertaking work in the borough, enables us to make improvements and investment in the local area.
I am pleased that this work is taking place in the next few weeks as we know this green space is popular with borough residents, who have told us they would like it to be more accessible to them.”
