Stephen Hubbard has given his Members Ward Improvement Fund (WIF) to develop an accessible path through Broomhill’s newly acquired “Old Orchard”.
Cllr Stephen Hubbard, Labour & Co-op Member for Strood North Ward said, “Friends of Broomhill are engaged on a rolling development of the Old Orchard, with an end term aim to make the area accessible to all users.
“Wherever possible, work will be (and has been) carried out by volunteers, but contracted labour will be used for areas that require special skills.
“The first stage of creating an accessible path will require clearance of the route. This will require a contractor with a mini digger to carry out the heavy first stage clearance. The work will take place from autumn 2019 until spring 2020.
“Once completed, the accessible path will enable all park users to access all area of Broomhill Park and the Old Orchard.”
