Update on the condition of Ashburton Park
After enquiries from FOAP, the Council Parks Dept have now advised us that the damaged area in the large field is soon to be cordoned off and works to reinstate will proceed as and when the weather and ground permits.
Seeding of the area may be done in the Spring so the area could be out of use for some time.
FOAP will continue to engage with the Council to ensure this is completed satisfactorily and that any other issues with regard to the park are brought to their attention promptly.
The Association also writes regularly to the Council on issues such as fly-tipping, street lighting and traffic/parking, BHRA worked with the council on behalf of residents to limit the use of Tenterden Road, Pagehurst and Wydehurst for the numerous fun fairs, main entry is now via the new double gates at the front of Ashburton Park.
The BHRA was formed 35 years ago to give a voice to local people on issues that matter to them.
The BHRA Committee meets regularly to listen to local concerns and to plan social events, to which all members are invited.
Each road covered by the Association has a representative who is automatically on the committee to ensure that issues are raised and heard.
Recent Matters under discussion have inevitably been the Blackhorse Lane Bridge closure and is negative impact on local residents and local traders, and the newly refurbished Ashburton Hall.
Membership is open to all residents in the following roads.
Blackhorse Lane, Coniston Road, Cambourne Road, 2-134 Dalmally Road (Even Numbers to Dalmally Passage), 1-67 Dalmally Road (Odd numbers to Addiscombe Avenue), Mount Pleasant View, Pagehurst Road, Wydehurst Road, Sissinghurst Road, Tenterden Road, Tenterden Gardens, Teevan Road, Teevan Close, Lower Addiscombe Road (From Spring Lane, both sides) and Woodside Court Road.
