Leys Play Area Surfacing

To receive and consider the report of the Operations Manager.


The Committee received and considered the report of the Operations Manager regarding the playground entrance as well as a verbal update from the Deputy Town Clerk regarding recent comments received from RoSPA following an inspection.


Members agreed with the report and asked that the Operations Manager proceed with grounds renovation works in early spring.


The Deputy Town Clerk advised that following a recent inspection from RoSPA, a second entrance should be considered, to provide a secondary exit point for any park user to use e.g. following intimidation. This second exit would also be useful in future, for example if further access works are required.




1.     That, the report be noted and,

2.     That, the Council proceeds to complete ground renovation works in early Spring, closing the main entrance of the Leys with both triple swing sets. A temporary entrance would be created for this period and,

3.     That, officers explore making the temporary entrance  into a second permanent entrance.
