Dear Resident,

I write with regards to the Sandymoor Sports development on Wharford Lane, Sandymoor. The land is owned by Sandymoor Parish Council (SPC) and was allocated for a recreational facility for Sandymoor residents as part of the overall Sandymoor Development Plan. The new facility will be built and maintained by the Parish.

Planning Permission was gained by the Parish for the Sports facility development last year, and I now wish to update you on progress of the project.

HBC have been working with SPC to implement this facility, which will be used under a shared use agreement by Sandymoor School and available to book out by residents outside school hours. Further details for how the new facilities can be booked will be advertised in due course.

A main contractor for construction of the works has been appointed and works are due start from 5th February 2018, with full site mobilization taking place from 26th March 2018. Access to the site will be via a temporary access point off Wharford Lane. The construction period is due to take 15 weeks with completion by late June/early July 2018, weather permitting.

The main contractor if fully aware of site constraints and highway restrictions and will work closely with the Parish and Council to minimize disruption to local residents and the adjacent school.

During the construction phase if you have any cause for concern, please do not hesitate to contact me on the telephone number above or on my email address –

Warm regards, Bernadette Tarry, Clerk to Sandymoor Parish Council.
