Cuttle Brook Flood Alleviation works at Sunnydale Park
In order to carry out the Cuttle Brook flood alleviation works and keep the public safe, it will be necessary to close some areas of Sunnydale Park and some of the footpaths through the park.
- The footpath between Rosemond’s Rise and Nevinson Drive will be closed from Mon 2 Aug 2021 until mid-December. A diversion route will be signposted around the works.
- The area of the park between Rosamond’s Rise and Nevinson Drive will be closed including the playing field and Cricket Pitch between Wilson Avenue and Nevinson Drive.
- Access to the play area will be maintained during August if it is safe to do so. The play area can be accessed from Pegwell Close, Summer Wood court, and Shear Water Close.
We understand that closing such a large area of the park is not ideal at this time of year, however it is important that the works are carried out during the dryer parts of the year to protect the brook course and to ensure that the construction vehicles do not damage the park unduly.
