13. What will happen to the Fun Park site?
The Fun Park site will be redeveloped. To enable the whole development to start we need to use part of this site as a construction compound and to move spoil as the development progresses. This will also involve demolition of any structures and filling in the former boating lake. We will also need to make the overall site secure.
Keeping as much construction spoil on site minimises lorry movements in the locality and waste disposal costs. There are also a number of ecological constraints to the site which mean that grasses have to be moved before development can take place. This requires the developer/contractor to be able to have access across the entire site for movement of materials as the development progresses.
