Jubilee Park news
The Development Trust has applied for
planning permission to upgrade the paths on the site and
to install a new and less steep path around the site.
A decision is expected around the end of the month.
Once permission has been granted, an application for
funding for the paths will be submitted to Awards for

trust if you are interested in helping with this
important improvement in the facilities available to all
the residents of the villa
