There are a number of simultaneous building and improvement works taking place on Mapledurham Playing Fields. We will regularly update this web page to keep you up to date.

Construction of the Heights Primary School

The ongoing construction of the Heights Primary School is being undertaken by Kier, on behalf of the Department for Education. For all enquiries relating to the construction of the Heights Primary School, please contact the Kier project manager on John.Hempton2@kier.co.uk.

The Council's Environment Protection team is also monitoring the school construction works. If Kier is unable to answer your question and your query is related to an environmental protection matter, please email environmental.protection@reading.gov.uk

If you feel the construction noise is excessive, or is taking place outside of the agreed prescribed hours (Monday-Friday 8am-6pm and Saturday 9am-1pm) you can submit evidence via The Noise App.' This can be downloaded onto a smartphone for free at https://www.thenoiseapp.com. This app is an online tool that enables residents to make and submit recordings of the noise that is affecting them. Recordings help provide supporting evidence to any breach of the agreed hours of work and will help the Council how best to further any investigation. Evidence on the noise app may be used in court if legal action is pursued taken and may be needed to support any evidence you submit.

July 2020 update

Sports pitch works

Agripower Ltd, working on behalf of the Council, have completed the grass seeding of the new sports turf area. The heras fencing will remain in place until the new turf has been assessed by professional experts and the grass is established enough to walk on. Timescales for establishing the grass and removing the fencing will be dependent on the weather. The Council will then schedule any remaining works following any revised Covid-19 advice.

Pavilion works

AYM are progressing these works with the new side extension for the sports changing rooms now taking shape. New drainage has been installed and new roof trusses fitted to form the new roof over the east side of the pavilion. Over the next month new windows and doors will be installed, and work will move inside forming the internal walls and installing cabling and pipework for the new electrics and plumbing throughout the pavilion.

AYM are following updated Covid19 advice on construction working and are also working with the Council's Environment Protection Team to limit any noisy work where possible. A noise monitor has been installed by the pavilion to automatically record noise levels and these readings can be seen below.

Please note, pedestrian access to the playing fields from the car park will continue to be along the side of the tennis courts.
