Petition update from the council, 02 June 2016

In accordance with the Council's petition scheme, the Business Portfolio Holder, Cllr Craig Fennell, has provided the following response:

"We are investigating various funding options that might allow us to invest in this valuable community area. While nothing is definite at the moment, it is something we are keen to progress. It is accepted that the current Old Dean Recreation ground is in need of investment, and we will be working with the local community to see if there is a way of not only to refurbishing the space, but also coming up with a long term sustainable future.

In the meantime, Council Officers and Surrey Heath’s grounds maintenance contractor, Glendale, have begun making improvements to the aesthetic of the park within existing budgets, and will continue to do so."

More details from petition creator

The large children's park and the bike track on the Wimbledon Road recreation ground are in need of updating and improving. The whole area needs modernising to fit current needs. For many people this area is the local play park, but they go out of the area to find a better site. We have such a huge ground and could have some fantastic equipment here. Vandalism is also an issue but with signs in place on how to report criminal damage and anti social behaviour i believe this could be reduced. Also cutting back of trees and hedges will make the area more open and less likely to be damaged. Please sign our petition to help this happen. This is the first step!
