A recreational field in Chorley is undergoing a makeover as part of a council project.

Coronation Recreation Ground on Devonshire Road will have all its footpaths 
repaired after residents and councillors suggested the work as part of the neighbourhood improvement project.

The work is expected to take a few weeks.

The work will include replacing or reinstalling grids and improving the board and cobble edges to the footpath.

The footpaths will then be sealed using ‘slurry’ tarmac, creating a smooth surface for people to enjoy all corners of the recreation ground.

Coun Adrian Lowe, who is responsible for neighbourhood improvement projects at Chorley Council said: “Coronation Recreation Ground is a fantastic facility in the centre of Chorley for everyone to enjoy.

“However, to ensure it continues that way, a number of improvements have been identified and the council is working with local people to spruce up the recreation ground.

“So far this year, we have installed new litter bins and are currently improving the large herbaceous border along the pavilion side as well as the fencing.

“The work will cause minimal disruption to the use of the recreation ground but it will definitely improve the overall look and use of the facilities.”

Chorley Council is also reviewing a planning application to develop Rangletts Recreational field on Duke Street.
