Berry Hill Park To Be Maintained
On Friday 7 December, Cllr Andrew Tristram, the Portfolio Holder for Environment and Wellbeing, took a delegated decision for Mansfield District Council to enter into an interim Service Level Agreement with the trustees of Berry Hill Park for the provision of essential maintenance work.
This is an interim arrangement until the council takes a formal decision on its future involvement in Berry Hill Park.
Cllr Tristram said: "We took this decision because we want to support the trustees in maintaining the park and enable this much loved facility to remain open to the public."We hope we will be able to reach a decision with the trustees to enable a more long-term arrangement regarding the park's future."
The cost of the maintenance will be met out of the council's existing parks budget and the work will include:
- Litter picking
- Bin emptying
- Grass cutting
- Leaf clearing
- Repairs where necessary to meet health and safety requirements to keep the park accessible.
The decision comes after public protests last month when it was revealed the park was to shut.
