Doric Park extraordinary Meeting - 3rd May

May 3, 2022

Doric Park continues to cause controversy amongst Trowbridge Councillors, the protracted discussions coupled with raising prices and inflation across the United Kingdom have caused the cost of the project to rise.

Both the Liberal Democrat led Trowbridge town council and Wiltshire Council have been clear that they have a long-term strategy to develop a 3rd Generation Artificial Turf Pitch at Doric Park and the project has gained widespread support amongst Trowbridge residents.

Trowbridge town councillors will hold an extraordinary meeting on Tuesday, May 3 to consider final approval of the Doric Park 3G-ATP investment.

At the meeting, they will also be asked to approve a tender from a main contractor to build the proposed new leisure facility, which is due for completion in September 2023.

Two of the oppposition councillors continue to raise questions and concerns about the public works loan board costs and viability, providing opposition scrutiny however they have yet to provide an alternative strategy for Doric Park costs or alternative robust solutions.
