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 have been 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 2016, it recommended that a 2.8m high barrier is installed. The Parish Council have approved the installation of the fence subject to planning consent and installation of a Laurel hedge to provide screening and additional noise reduction.
