The Parish Council is delighted to say that progress has been made towards getting a Play Area at the open space as shown on the Location Map (See link below)
Site Location B was selected in October 2016 and confirmed at the Parish Council meeting on Weds 22 March 2017.
A more precise drawing has been produced of the chosen area and in the view of the Council is the most acceptable place
We are now able to progress with the play area, securing a lease for the land, raising funds and selecting appropriate equipment
This will take some time, but we are hopeful of having the opening late summer
A working group, including residents, will be formed in due course to help select the equipment

Further to our public consultation last year the parish council voted unanimously on ‘Site B’ as a single site location for a new play area. This is a stretch of grass running parallel with the woods opposite the end of Hampden Road. Thank you to everyone who took the time to return a questionnaire and attend meetings.
We have now applied for a number of grants to fund the works and we will know late spring/early summer as to whether these have been successful.
The working group will reconvene in the near future to discuss choosing the apparatus and landscaping should the funding go ahead. The date of this meeting will be published shortly.
We also attach a presentation prepared following independent analysis of the survey results.
