Views sought for the new Greenwich Park

The public are being asked for their views on a new park for Ripley. Plans for a Green Flag standard park off Nottingham Road in Ripley were first shown at Amber Valley Borough Council's meeting on Wednesday 2 November in which proposals were announced for possible new homes for existing sports clubs in Ripley, as well as new play and recreational facilities for the people of Ripley. 

The Leader of the Council, Councillor Stuart Bradford, responded to the public representations about the Gateway development by developers Clowes Westerman, who are proposing a new Gateway to Ripley including new homes and an eco superstore. The revised plans would mean the height and scale of the superstore building would be reduced.

Proposals also included enhanced recreational facilities, which could include a multi user games area, a skate park and a circular walking track. The plans also include landscaping and picnic areas as well as a sports pavilion and extra car parking.

A consultation has been launched to ask local residents and young people for their views about the new park and its facilities. The Council is talking with the clubs about the sports use of the park.

Councillor Stuart Bradford, Leader of the Council said: " The consultation gives young people and a chance to have their say about the facilities proposed for the new park."

"If plans are approved it could deliver the first mile of a long awaited A610 link road the roundabout at Coach Road, Ripley to Alfreton Road, Codnor. The new link road would also lead to improvements to the currently unkempt land adjacent to Nottingham Road, so improving the gateways to Ripley and Codnor."
