Changes to the area

Stanpit Rec was identified as an area in need of improvement and investment. The Stanpit Recreation Ground proposal plan to make the recreation ground more attractive, welcoming and accessible has been completed in 2018. The changes focused on enlarging and upgrading the car park followed by the introduction of onsite signage, phased tree and hedge planting, wild flower areas, path improvements and new street furniture.

New developments

In December 2018 the creation of a new Park was agreed. This uses developers funding to convert the golf facilities at Two Riversmeet. This is a partnership that uses contributions from developers to mitigate the impacts of development on local heathland by encouraging the use of alternative sites.
