Residents and users of the existing facilities in Beare Green are being invited to take part in a public consultation to help decide what the proposed improvements to Merebank Recreation Ground playground will look like.
To have your say and help shape the latest Mole Valley District Council (MVDC) playground improvement project, please visit www.molevalley.gov.uk/merebankplay to complete a short survey. The consultation will finish on Wednesday 19 August 2020.
The improvements will see the existing wooden balance beam and wobble board from the fenced play area removed and replaced with new, more modern, challenging and fun play equipment. Participants will be asked to choose their top three of the designs put forward by play companies. Copies of the designs will also be available to view at the Community Centre in Merebank.
Having counted the votes, the winning design will be chosen following the conclusion of the consultation. The successful play company will then install the new items of equipment this autumn.
Cabinet Member for Leisure, Councillor David Draper, said: “Having been through the period we have in recent months, with playgrounds being temporarily unavailable for children to enjoy, I believe we have all developed a greater appreciation of the importance of these facilities to our communities.
“It is therefore essential that playgrounds are both fun and welcoming environments for the whole family to spend quality time together. Please do get involved in this project so that we can ensure the final design is valued and well-used for many years to come.”
