The Town Council have completed the lease to take over responsibility for Highfields Play Area from Stroud District Council for the next 25 years (until 2041).
We have started the process of looking at the work required to bring the area up to an acceptable standard. We will be concentrating first on those issues we consider to be a priority e.g. work related to safety.

The Green Spaces Committee have confirmed two areas for improvement early in 2017.
The first major improvement at Highfields has now been completed with the refurbished BMX track being recently completed and reopened for use.
The improvement works included re-grading the areas of "dirt" track and surfacing the corners and bends of the track, which will result in a longer wearing track which will reduce the level of future maintenance required by the Town Council. These improvements will significantly improve the quality of the ride for our BMX enthusiasts.
GOAL POSTS & PITCH IMPROVEMENTS
Our next area for improvement is the replacement of the rather tired and worn football goal posts and surfaces. The existing posts are going to be removed over soon with reseeding and turfing works to commence shortly afterwards. We are going to allow the newly repaired areas of the pitch time to recover with new combined football/rugby post being erected in the summer.
