  •          Exciting times for Shakespeare Park
    WP 000193

    Following a public consultation and involvement of both the Shakespeare Park Bowls Club and Braunstone Juniors Football Club, Bruanstone Town Council submitted ambitious plans to rebuild the Pavilion and improve the facilities for play, recreation and parking at Shakespeare Park to Blaby District Council for planning consent.   This consent has now been given and we are now in the process of putting together the specifications ready to invite tenders for the contract for the work.

    Meanwhile, some site clearance has taken place in order that soil tests can be undertaken to ascertain the foundations and drainage required. These tests will take place on 22nd November. Site and construction works are anticipated to begin in Spring 2018.
