Construction Works at Oaklands Park
As you may be aware, Gloucestershire FA is planning to construct a new education and social facility at Oaklands Park. The project will enter the construction phase in mid-November 2019 with completion planned by end of May/ start of June 2020 and we hope the new facilities will enhance the football experience for all.
Health & Safety
Everyone visiting or working at Oaklands Park needs to be aware that the entire grass area behind the goal at the north end of the site will become a construction site. The perimeter will be securely fenced off by the principal contractor and there will be no access permitted to this area.
Fortunately, the construction works will not restrict use of the 3G pitch, changing rooms or main car park, but it does mean additional Health & Safety precautions apply. Tutors and candidates should take note of safety signage and be aware of additional hazards (e.g. vehicles or building materials) outside the site perimeter barrier. This is particularly relevant if a course is being delivered during normal working hours (Monday to Friday).
