Your playground, your choice
Residents can comment on designs for five local playgrounds as a round of consultation events is held across the district next week (18 to 22 August).
Thanet District Council have pledged nearly £200,000 to revamp play equipment in the District including four brand new sets of play equipment and one replacement set. The council has commissioned leading play equipment designers to create proposals and now the council is bringing the designs to parks to find out residents’ preferred choice.
Residents can view the designs and choose their favourites at the following times:
10am to 1pm 18 August at Crispe Park, Birchington
10am to 1pm 19 August at Northdown Park, Cliftonville
10am to 1pm 20 August at Memorial Recreation Ground, Broadstairs
10am to 1pm 21 August at King George VI Park, Ramsgate
10am to 1pm 22 August at Warren Recreation Ground, Newington
The council need to take into account many factors including price, delivery and quality, however resident feedback will form part of the final decision.
Leader of Thanet District Council and Cabinet Member for Community Services Cllr Iris Johnston said, “It’s great to have input from the community as to what would be their preferred design. Going out to the parks affected means that we can get a real, on the ground view from park users as to what they would like best in terms of equipment – some of the proposals even incorporate zip wires! I’d urge anyone who uses these parks to come along to view these exciting proposals and choose their favourite.’
