Speller Metcalfe has been awarded the project to restore and improve facilities at Stevens Park in Quarry Bank, Dudley.
Following public consultation and input from the Friends of Stevens Park, building works will see Tintern House (formerly known as the White House) restored and extended to create a community café, new toilets and meeting rooms as part of the first phase of works.
The Council is working in partnership with the Emily Jordan Foundation, a charity working to support people with learning disabilities. The Foundation will operate from Tintern House and will be developing horticultural training opportunities and a bike recycling workshop, alongside other opportunities to support people with learning disabilities to move closer towards work.
Further improvements will include new access to the Peace Gardens to enable wheelchair and pushchair users to enjoy the memorial setting, alongside additional footpaths and planting.
