TORRIDGE District Council approved plans to renovate a Bideford Park at a meeting on Tuesday.

Bideford Town Council approached the district council about improving areas of Victoria Park.

Torridge, which own the park, discussed the plans at a community and resources committee meeting.

Phase one of the improvements includes a reinforced public entertainment area to the southern end of the park, with clearance of some trees, shrubs, fencing and banks to create an open environment when viewed from Kingsley Road.

Phase two includes the erection of a new war memorial in the park.

The ideas for the improvements have come on the back of Manor Court, a feudal style court which was held in Bideford Town Hall last month.

Phase one, which is thought to cost around £50,000, will be funded by the town council and is hoped to be undertaken in the autumn.

Further discussions on the war memorial phase will need to take place now Torridge has agreed the scheme.
