Restoration Project

Introduction

Dudley Council has been successful in gaining Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) support for its Round 1 bid for the restoration of Stevens Park, Quarry Bank. The authority have commissioned a design team to work alongside council officers, elected councillors and key stakeholders to take the project forward to a Round 2 submission in February 2018. This current phase of work is called the development stage.

The project itself is made up of two main areas of work

  • Capital works – i.e. physical restoration projects such as restoring the white house building, refurbishing the bandstand, footpath improvements etc. This is all brought together in an overall master plan
  • Activity works – i.e. providing a range of events and activities in the park to attract new people. This is written up in an Activity Plan.

Once we have completed the development phase we will be able to apply to the HLF for a grant to implement the full project. We estimate the full cost of the project to be around £1.5 million.

Watch out here for more updates on the project as the development work proceeds.
