Allhallows (Kent) Parish Council
Sport and Community Facilities
The owners of Allhallows Park (Kingsmead), Turners Group have submitted a planning application to expand the number of chalets on their site by 81 - this should be published by Medway Council soon (and will be dealt with on its planning merits separately). As part of their application they identified a shortfall in sporting (indoor and outdoor), open space and community facilities in their area and have proposed a legal agreement with the Parish Council to provide funds to various facilities on the Cross Park site (to be provided, owned and operated by the Parish Council - probably via a Charity Group - and shared with ALL residents and visitors to the area). :
- Permissive Path - between Cross Park and the Recreation Field (landscaped and surfaced)
- A Bowling Green (the planning application adds an option of tennis courts instead)
- A expansion of the Cross Park Pavilion to provide changing rooms, indoor sport and community/social facilities.
The final design and facilities would be provided by the parish council and subject to planning applications as necessary (all residents will be able to comment). This is totally separate from the Woodland Creation Project (although there may be opportunities to work together if both are agreed). The Parish Council want your feedback and an online survey will be available to make your comments) before there is any commitment for this work.
The Turners Group presented material at a Pre-Planning Consultation in the Cross Park Pavilion 30th November 2017, so comments on their planning application should be made to Medway Planning Department - comments on these new facilities should be made to the parish council.
The parish council also want to hear your views on their suggestions before any decision to support or reject is made, a survey is available on this site - replies required by February 28th 2018.
