KING GEORGE V MEMORIAL PLAYING FIELDS UPDATE

The following update relates to the condition of the area located to the south of the stream, at the bottom of the King George V Memorial Playing Fields.

The ground to the south of the stream at the bottom of the King George V Playing Fields was originally excavated to enable construction of a large water main.

Although this has been completed, the field is still in a neglected state. This is due to the time of year and it being bird nesting season; works are now set to resume in the Autumn and will significantly improve its condition.

This includes the creation of a pedestrian / cycle route, which will formalise what is already a widely used walking route, while also providing a link between Sherford and Elburton. This project is being led by Plymouth City Council, and is expected to commence in September for completion and opening in November.
