Stabmonk Park could join the Slough Borough Council (SBC) family as cabinet approved bringing the transfer to full council.

Cabinet members met on March 16, where officers recommended to accept the transfer of Stabmonk Park Chalvey Millennium Green from the previous caretakers, the Chalvey Millennium Green Trust, to the council as a corporate trustee of charitable land.

This means SBC and their trustee committee would take responsibility for the land and maintain it.

The costs of improving the paths and furniture as well as creating an access bridge over Chalvey Brook will be covered by the authorities Slough Urban Renewal – a scheme with its construction and rejuvenation partner, Morgan Sindall Investments Limited, to build and improve homes, schools and community facilities across the borough.

According to the report, the transfer comes as members of the trust are struggling to recruit younger residents into the organisation and have a lack of resources to keep managing and maintaining the park.

Stabmonk Park, which was named after a legend of a resident stabbing a monkey at the park, was established in 1998 where the trust has looked after since a planning application was submitted to destroy the land.

Councillor James Swindlehurst, the leader of the council, said: “The trustee committee, which I am a member of, had discussions about this, I think, in February.

“We had a long and robust discussion on it, but the general message was that we were very, very pleased to see us proposing to have the Chalvey Millennium Green Trust joining our family of lands holding trust.”

The proposal will be brought to full council April 28.
