Reigate & Banstead Borough Council has selected Blakedown Landscapes as its preferred contractor for the refurbishment of Merstham Recreation Ground.
Plans for the £1.5m improvement project include recreational spaces and improved access to nature, while being accessible to the whole community.
Proposals also include the delivery of new footpaths, urban furniture, a new pavilion and play area, a young centric area, outdoor gym and new planting.
Enhancements to the site’s biodiversity and natural environment have also been outlined in the proposal in an effort to encapsulate the new communal amenities in a ‘green heart’ for the community.
Upon receiving planning permission in May last year, the Borough Council announced a timeline for the project would be released once a contractor had been appointed.
At present the water drainage tests are being carried out on the site in preparation for the refurbishment work, which the council says they hope will begin in the spring.
