More car parking spaces to be created at two Grantham parks
Extra parking spaces will soon be available at two public parks in Grantham.
South Kesteven District Council has responded to a user survey that identified extra spaces for visitors as a priority for Wyndham Park.
An additional 25 spaces will be created by extending the existing car park. Work will get under way in the week starting Monday, September 23, and will take 10 days.
The Cabinet member for commercial and operations, Coun Dr Peter Moseley, said: “While we actively encourage local people to enjoy the environmental and health benefits of walking or cycling to the park, some visitors have to use their cars.
“Providing these extra spaces will make visitor parking easier and will also help reduce on-street parking on nearby streets.”
In addition, a new 30-space car park is to be created in Queen Elizabeth Park at its entrance on Belton Lane. The work is part of a project to upgrade the whole park and will start on Monday (September 9). It is expected to take two weeks to complete.
Coun Dr Moseley said: “Our parks between them attract well over a million visitors a year and we are continually working to improve the visitor experience in all of them.”
