A resident recently posed a query on LoveGoostrey about the amount of tarmac shown in the computer generated picture surrounding the new Scout Hut & Youth Centre, David Giles has kindly explained their plans:
“Thank you for your comments. The Scouts are also very keen to preserve the green space in the village and plan to retain most of the new land as grass, where the young people may enjoy outdoor activities such as lighting fires, erecting tents and playing games. I have enclosed a proposed site plan which shows how we intend to use the land, including keeping the rear of the new facility as grass (with the exception of a small soft play area for young children) and the land to the side for parking and a shared access for the neighbouring farm fields.

We are considering *grasscrete for the parking area; however our funds are limited and we shall not be making a decision on which materials to use until later in the project. Our plans are subject to planning consent, which will include requirements for surfacing and landscaping. I am grateful for your interest and support in our project, we shall be posting regular updates on the LoveGoostrey website.
Yours in Scouting, David Giles – Group Scout Leader”
*grasscrete: cellular grassed paving in concrete or plastic.
