The Friends of Udney Park Playing Fields (FUPPF) Newsletter 25 - 8th Sept 2017
The recent newsletter circulated by the Friends of Udney Park Playing Fields contained some information that is out of date regarding our plans for the future of the former ICL Private Ground on Udney Park Road. It refers to material that was issued over 2 years ago, before we purchased the site. Since then our plans have evolved considerably, and are now entirely different from our initial thinking.
We would like to clarify our position regarding the future of our site.
We will provide extra care affordable retirement accommodation and a new GP surgery on 3 acres of this site. We will gift the remaining 9.5 acres to the Teddington Community Sport Ground CIC for public sports, leisure and community use.
We have been working closely with both the Park Road GP surgery and the Teddington Community Sports Ground (TCSG) CIC to meet these objectives, and remain committed to building and providing these much needed and wanted facilities to the community.
Our planning application will be submitted shortly and will include a series of legal documents that will ensure that what we say will be delivered will be. These legal documents will guarantee that should planning permission be granted and implemented, then the facilities and GP surgery will be built to the specifications proposed, and the community facilities will be gifted to the Teddington Community Sports Ground (TCSG CIC), and maintained with provisions to secure future maintenance. These documents will all be available for the public to review.
We would like to reassure everyone in the community of our continued commitment to deliver this scheme which will be clearly evidenced in our forthcoming planning application.
