A bid for funding from Housing for repairs to the pathway at the entrance to Holt Park has been successful. The Housing Advisory Panel bid was made by the Housing manager and an award of £1295 has been secured to resurface the pathway. This pathway leads into the small area of public open space/garden at the bottom of Holtdale Grove.

I fully support this and was pleased that this bid was made as local residents put a lot of effort into making the garden area a success. It would be a shame to spoil it for want of the pathway being unusable. It will now be resurfaced in time for winter which will prevent further deterioration during bad weather. I am pleased that the housing manager recognized the importance of keeping the pathway up to a good standard. Housing Area Panel (HAP) bids are a good way to deal with small projects like this which benefit the whole community.
