    Town Park Progress

    Have you seen the entrance to the Town Park? The curved feature walls create a wide, welcoming entrance with views through to the park. They have been built from local white lias stone with lettering spelling out “TOWN PARK” framed in rusting Corten steel, built into the wall. The steel reflects the past industrial nature of the site. The wall also includes a band of black stone as a hint of a coal seam, subtly reflecting the past coal mining history. The planning team at New Leaf worked closely with local historians to create a modern design that celebrates Midsomer Norton’s past and welcomes future generations to enjoy the Town Park.


    This year will see the installation of new fencing and a teen shelter at West Clewes Park. The existing wooden fence around the play park will be replaced with bow top metal railings with a green polyester powder coating. Councillors decided that as the shelter in the play park is for the under twelves and their parents, that they would look at purchasing another shelter for outside the area. This has been done and a new youth shelter outside of the play park will be installed shortly. If you have any concerns with vandalism or notice anything you think we should be aware of at West Clewes, or indeed, anywhere else in the Town, please get in touch. All our contact details can be found at www.midsomernortontowncouncil.co.uk.
