Grass Athletics Track DeliveryChurch Crookham Parish Council is proud to be working with Kestrel Contracts Limited to deliver the long awaited athletics running track which formed part of the Section 106 commitment by the developer of Crookham Park, Taylor Wimpey.
Please read the letter – see link below – which explains how Kestrel intend to access the site. The project about to commence means that the open space will be unavailable for the duration of the works. The site will be safely heras fenced off to prevent access by the public and we politely ask that you avoid the area whilst the work is carried out. Please visit this page as the project proceeds to receive updates on progress. Visit our Contact Us page if you have any concerns or questions about the project.
Week commencing 26th April 2021 – Kestrel are in the process of setting up access to the site with a channel of Heras fencing from the top of Gurkha Road. They will be implementing tracking to ensure safe egress across the open space. Access to the SANG from the footpath adjacent to the Wheel park is temporarily unavailable.
Week commencing 22nd March 2021 – Kestrel attended site and have cut the grass and sprayed to kill the vegetation on the top area where the works will be carried out. This will be given time to take effect before Kestrel return to site to progress the project.
Sensory GardenChurch Crookham Parish Council is hoping to provide a sensory garden in the heart of the community adjacent to the Church Crookham Community Centre. A place where users of the centre and those that visit the open spaces can find a tranquil space to sit amongst a beautifully designed space to stimulate senses. It will include accessible footpaths and seating, art installations, beautiful planting, a defined boundary to provide screening and a sense of place. See the initial design which we welcome feedback on and will use to develop the ideas to bring this scheme into being……
Previous ProjectsPlease see below for details of projects previously carried out by the parish council
Art TrailA trail of art installations around the Crookham Park development were paid for through developer funds. They include “Woodland Friends” carved animal waymarkers, carved tree trunks, sheep, and a bug hotel. Have you seen the beautiful weather vane on top of the allotment shed? Visited the Gurkha statue? Spotted ironworks on and around the Community Centre…? Then get exploring and see how many you can spot. New installations due in 2021!
New Wheel Park
Planning permission was granted to the Parish Council for construction of the new Wheel Park at Crookham Park on 12th November 2015. The Parish Council appointed Maverick to design and build the Wheel Park and it was opened in the Summer 2016. The Wheel Park has proved very popular. Two acoustic surveys were carried out to assess the noise impact on local housing. The first was carried out before the build and recommended that earth bunding was extended to 1.5m high above ground levels and this was implemented during the build. The second acoustic survey was conducted after the wheel park opened and covered the last few days and weekend of the summer holidays of 2016, it recommended that a 2.8m high barrier is installed. The Parish Council approved and installed an acoustic fence after obtaining planning consent and also installed a Laurel hedge to soften the visual and provide additional noise reduction. Please click on links below to read the acoustic reports.
Out-door Gym equipment
The parish council went out to tender to install some out-door gym equipment at the Peter Driver playing fields. The parish council requested designs that would be inclusive for use by the whole community. They wanted the gym to be suitable for functional body weight training and to be located In an area approximately 100m2 in front of the five a side pitch at the Peter Driver Sports ground. The parish council short listed three schemes that would fit within the allocated budget and meet the specification. The three schemes were from Wickstead, TGO and Komplan. TGO was found to be the preferred design and has now been installed at the Peter Driver playing fields.
