Replacement Fencing at Hailsham Country Park

Council News & Services, Environment

 

As part of its obligation to ensure that its public open spaces are well maintained and safe for the public, Town Council staff are currently working at Hailsham Country Park to renew boundary fencing on site.

The Town Council has recently funded a project to replace around 40 metres of fencing along the park boundary adjacent to St Mellion Close, which is due to be completed by the end of October.

“Hailsham Town Council is responsible for a number of areas of public open space within the town,” said Councillor Stella van der Geyten, vice-chairman of the Strategic Projects Committee. “This is a significant project for the Council and is necessary because the previous fence, installed many years ago, is in need of replacement due to wear and tear.”

“The new fencing will comply with all current safety standards, is virtually maintenance free and should last for 20 to 30 years.”

Hailsham Town Council is proud of its many improvements to the Country Park site in recent years, including the construction of a new path around Wentworth Pond, replacement of boundary fencing and other area-specific projects.

Other work carried out recently by Town Council staff at the 22-acre Hailsham Country Park situated off Gleneagles Drive include a major flood control project whereby land drains were installed to help prevent future flooding of footpaths in the park.

The park’s high level of maintenance by Town Council staff, together with regular monitoring of the area by a Water Bailiff, has ensured that the site remains a safe and clean public green space for the residents to enjoy.
