Three Weeks Left to Shape the Future of Broxtowe Play Areas

Three Weeks Left to Shape the Future of Broxtowe Play Areas

22/12/2016 - Time is running out to have your say on what could make your local Broxtowe play area more explorable, climbable or playable. Broxtowe Borough Council needs local children to help make its play areas even better by answering a few questions on how they like to play to help shape a new play strategy before the deadline on 13th January.

Children, with the help of their parents, are being asked to answer a range of questions about their favourite type of play spaces and activities as part of two online consultations run by the Council in partnership with Groundwork Greater Nottingham.

The consultations can be completed at: for five to nine year olds or for ten to 16 year olds

and are open until 13th January 2017.

Chair of the Leisure, Parks & Cemeteries Committee, Councillor Shane Easom said: We all have fond memories of playing on the swings, slide or climbing trees as youngsters and this consultation will help the Council make sure it's play areas meet the needs of local children so they can enjoy their play time. I urge any parents or teachers in the Borough to encourage and help their children to complete the surveys so we can improve these areas for future generations.

There are over 40 Council managed play areas across the Borough which are enjoyed by thousands of children each year.

It first produced a Play Strategy in 2007 but it needs a review to find out what priorities local children have when it comes to play areas to best meet their needs.

For more information, please contact Broxtowe Borough Council on the details provided.
