Recreation space work under way

Hambleton Council has injected £20,000 into a project to turn gifted land into recreation space for a small village on the edge of the district.

Battersby Junction which lies on the edge of the North York Moors National Park has 26 children under the age of 18 and no public transport links to neighbouring towns and villages for recreation and nowhere for younger children to play safely or to kick a ball around.

Ward member councillor Ron Kirk said: “Development of a recreation space will provide an amenity for village events and a neutral place for villagers to meet.

“The plans also include a children’s play area which will offer a safe and stimulating environment for the children to play in which is missing at the moment. The surrounding villages of Battersby, Inglebly Greenhow and Kildale will all benefit from the project as they have a growing population of under 18s and there is a really good community spirit between them all – having an outdoor space for community events will help to maintain it.”

The injection from the council's Making a Difference Fund has been used to remove contaminated soil. Once the clean soil has settled by spring, a drainage system will be installed.
