Chalkhill Park


Here is the correct position:-

"In October 2011 tenders were sent out to quote for the provision of a new park in Chalkhill.
It had been anticipated that the Council would be able to award a contract for this work to be undertaken and that contractors would start on site in December / January with approximately six months to completion.
Unfortunately, the Council was unable to accept any of the tenders submitted.  All the tenders submitted were unaffordable without reducing the specification, but it also became apparent that there was not full compliance with the Councils internal Standing Orders.
Therefore, Council will be starting the tendering process again within the next few weeks and hopes that this time,  the Council will receive affordable and suitable tender submissions.

The Council anticipates advertising the tender by the end of January, evaluating the tenders in mid February and awarding the contract in March with a six month contract to completion"

Please share this information with others.

Thank you

  1. Given that, much to the disappointment of Chalkhill's children, the park won't be completed until after Summer 2012, will you follow up the possibility of improvements to St David's Close Open Close before the summer. This would include a refurbished BMX track,levelled football area with posts, and installation of a skateboarding area.(All discussed previously with council officers). After the events of last summer it is important to make sure that we do all we can to keep youth and children occupied in the holidays.
