Works in Shirley Park resumed

Works in Shirley Park have now started again after a break of approximately five weeks due to recent rainfall.

Continuous wet weather and saturated ground since Christmas made the ground unsuitable for site works and Council contractors had to suspend work until the ground improved.

The completion date will now move from 1 April to approximately 1 May 2014.

The delay will have no financial impact on the improvement project to Shirley Park.

In total, £600,000 worth of improvements will be made including a nature area; an outdoor events shelter; wildflower area; community woodland; outdoor gym and dog walking and agility area.

The improvements will be funded by Solihull Council and Shirley Advance, the developer of Parkgate - the shopping, leisure and residential development complex currently being built in Shirley.
