Councillors voted on Wednesday evening to proceed with plans for mountain bike trails in Woodchester.
The site for the project is adjacent to the existing cycle path just north of Selsley Road.
The trails will be completed by Trailcraft, an experienced company from South Wales and will include two tracks, a ‘green grade’ for children from age four and a ‘blue grade’ track for slightly older riders.
Work is expected to begin around the 28th February and the tracks will take around three weeks to complete.
Councillors agreed to pay a shortfall in funding from Parish Council reserves in order that there are no more delays. It’s hoped that fundraising will take place to replenish the reserves during the year. Any ideas gratefully received!
If you’d like more information on the trails or would like to be more involved in maintenance or fundraising, please contact the clerk Ann Bijkerk – firstname.lastname@example.org
Plans for mountain bike trails were initiated by the Parish Council in 2013. Due to numerous delays and set-backs the trails are yet to be constructed. There will be a meeting to discuss the future of the proposed trails on Wednesday 8th February at 8pm in the Village Hall. All are welcome to attend.
The draft minutes of this meeting are now available.
SDC is introducing an exciting new approach to tenant involvement; giving two tenants the chance to represent tenants’ views at the
council’s housing committee and influence decisions potentially affecting the lives of 7,000 tenants. One appointment has already been made, and we are now looking for a second tenant representative. This unique opportunity is open to all tenants. An Independent Tenant Advisor from the Housing Quality Network (HQN)will carry out the selection of the best candidate. The closing date for applications is 8th January 2017. Click here for more details.
