Bramcote Hills Park play area to spring into new life with £187,632 in funding

26/04/24 - The Bramcote Hills Park play area will benefit from a refurbishment and upgrade thanks to funding of £187,632 from the FCC Communities Foundation and Broxtowe Borough Council’s own budget.

The play area was last renovated 16 years ago and now, along with the refurbishment of play equipment on site, additional equipment will be added. The new equipment will add extra play value to the area, providing activities for a wide range of ages and abilities. 

Following an extensive Bramcote Hills Park Consultation, the Council has taken this opportunity to listen to its residents as the new design will be based on their thoughts on improvements at the park. The Council carried this consultation out last summer, receiving over 1,000 responses, which helped to secure the additional £99,840 grant from the FCC.

Head of Environment, Emma Georgiou said, “We are excited to carry out works that residents have told us they would like to see. This is an incredible opportunity to improve one of the most popular green spaces in the Borough and make a difference to our residents.”

FCC Communities Foundation Senior Grant Manager, Richard Smith said, “We’re delighted to be supporting the new play area at Bramcote Hills and pleased our funding will provide such a fantastic facility for young people. FCC Communities Foundation is always happy to consider grant applications for projects that make a difference to local communities and we’re really looking forward to seeing this one take shape soon.”

The FCC Communities Foundation is a not-for-profit business that awards grants for communities through the Landfill Communities Fund.
