Play area improvements

The Council has 46 play areas located across the borough that are provided for young people up to age of 15. These are managed and maintained by the Council's Streetscene team who undertake regular inspections to ensure that the facilities are safe.

A review was recently undertaken of all play areas in the borough and a five-year plan of improvements has been put in place. 

We will consult with local residents about the play area improvements before any changes are made. For information about these consultations please visit
