Mayfield Construction has gone into administration with most of the staff being made redundant.

Working on behalf of site owner Langtree, Mayfield was the main contractor on the refurbishment of the park.

Following the announcement, Langtree has said that the gardens’ opening will need to be put back from July to mid-September as it searches for a replacement contractor to complete Mayfield’s contract.

John Downes, Langtrees Managing Director said “I know from personal experience how keen people are to see the new gardens and it is frustrating that they will have to wait a little longer. However, I can assure you that it will be worth the wait.”

Downes added that emergency ground maintenance staff are being drafted in by Langtree on a temporary basis to tend to the newly laid lawns and flower beds until a new contractor is identified.

Downes said: “On the plus side, when we re-open everything will have had a little longer to bed in and mature and the gardens will look even more spectacular.”
