We have started installing the replacement pipeline. This will take around two months to complete.
To reduce temporary impacts to the sports pitch we have reduced the width of our working area from 30m to 10m in this area.
Once we’ve completed installation, the excavated areas will be fully reinstated and the playing fields reseeded using specialist sports field contractors.
The map above provides information on installation within the sports ground. As outlined in the planning process, the project is using narrow working through the sports ground.
Further information on our construction plans can be found below.
We have committed to using a reduced working width of 10m when installing through the playing ground. This means the sports grounds will remain open for smaller activities and general recreation, with a fenced working area at the back of the field.
Access to the sports ground will be available throughout installation.
Street snooker will be closed for the duration of works, in agreement with Hart District Council.
The car park used for Peter Driver Sports Ground will remain open.
We are using an open cut technique to install through the sports ground. Works will take around two months to complete.
The work areas are fully secure with locked gates and 24-hour security.
Once we’ve completed installation, the excavated areas will be fully reinstated and the playing fields reseeded using specialist sports field contractors. We will incorporate guidance from Sport England together with specific guidance from the Parish Council on the standard the reinstated playing fields need to meet.
