£1.5 million for park improvements

Finches Field MasterplanThe Council will be investing £1.5 million in key parks and open spaces across the District over the next 12 months.

We've consulted with residents to create masterplans for improvements at Hemsley’s Meadow and Finches Field in Pease Pottage, Mount Noddy in East Grinstead, and Victoria Park in Haywards Heath.

Here are just some of the potential improvement projects for each park and open space:

Hemsley’s Meadow and Finches Field

All weather pathways that create circular walks and a resurfaced car park
Establishment of a wet woodland
Pathways mown through wildflower grasses in the summer
New play areas for children

Mount Noddy

Leisure equipment for older children and young adults
New sensory play area
Improved lighting
Creation of a picnic meadow

Victoria Park

New play area facilities
Improved frontage along South Road
