COUNCIL chiefs have taken the wraps off the proposed design for a new £200,000 bike and mini wheels pump track in Charity Brook Park.
Wychavon District Council has appointed a contractor to deliver the new track for the much-loved Evesham park and now want to hear from local residents about the proposed design.
The cycle track was closed without warning in November 2018 after officers admitted the track had reached the end of its natural life and the timbers on the track were rotting.
Council bosses called for local residents to make their voices heard over the future of the venue after admitting there had been ‘overwhelming’ calls for replacing the track rather than doing something different with the space.
Wychavon opened a consultation to get a better idea of the usage, understand feelings about the track and find out what they would like to replace it.
In response, 328 residents took part in a consultation and 92 per cent wanted the old track to be replaced with a new one.
The new track will include a variety of elements for all ages and abilities.
