In addition to this, plans for a Traffic Calming Scheme on Ridgewood Avenue (from the entrance roundabout up to the playing pitches) are now on public display.
Locals are invited to have their say on the proposals and can make submission to the council up to 4.30pm on Friday, September 5.
The plans include the construction of seven round-top speed ramps and the installation of double yellow lines on the South side of Ridgewood Avenue along the Green and towards the MKN site for the new houses. The plans also include the Installation of two solar-powered speed readers on the Green for each approach.
Also included in the proposals is the installation of a dished kerb and footpath and apron on both sides of Ridgewood Avenue from the grass verge outside House numbers 21 and 22 to the open space or green area.
