The challenge helped protect 2012 outdoor recreational spaces in communities across the country as a permanent living legacy.
The modular building is one of the first that Wycombe District Council has built. There will be a total of four lorry deliveries to the recreation ground at 10.00am, 11.00am and 12.00pm for the building sections and at 12.30pm for the whole of the roof section.

The parking restrictions will effect both sides of Shelley Road near the vehicular entrance to the recreation ground to allow sufficient turning space for the delivery lorries. No parking will be permitted in this area until mid-afternoon.
On Monday 22nd January 2018 a temporary protective road surface will be laid from the vehicular entrance to the park off Shelley Road, up through the car park and alongside the location of the new building.

During the deliveries the park will remain open however pedestrian access will be supervised from the Shelley Road entrance to minimise risk. Pedestrian users of the park are advised to avoid the Shelley Road entrance during the deliveries and use the two other entry points off Carver Hill Road and Wordsworth Road wherever possible.
