The construction of The Arc was funded by grants so the budget was unfortunately tight. Gravel brings the advantage of aiding drainage and reducing surface run-off to nearby housing. We are aware that the gravel has been laid too deeply in places and we are working to rectify this. Once the gravel is at the correct depth and has been compacted by traffic, we hope the carpark will be easier to use. There is a Tarmac path from the site entrance to the slabs at the main entrance door. This will ensure the Arc is easier to access by bike, wheelchairs, prams etc.

Will the gravel carpark be replaced with tarmac?
