Park projects set to go ahead

NEARLY £32,000 is set to be spent on Aldwick’s West Park.

Arun District Council is about to put the money towards improving the open space.

The council’s environmental services’ head, Terence Chapman, is due to approve the expenditure today. The money will enable a footbridge, path and bunds to be installed.

The bridge will create a new access point to the northwest of the park and the path will run along its western and southern perimeters.

The bunds, built with spoil from the path, will discourage unauthorised access. Of the cost, £24,800 will from the SITA trust and the other £7,000 from the district council.
