Parks  and Play Area Development (Total of 70 returns)

Community Consultation Questionnaire

The Parks and Play Area Project Group have obtained designs and quotations for the redesign of the play park area, the installation of a Multi-Use Games Area (MUGA) and the drainage of the playing field area.  The Gala is an opportunity to present what our park and playing field could look like.  Your feedback and comments are essential to taking this development any further; the project can only go ahead if it has majority support from the community.  Please take the time to give us your views through this questionnaire.
