Residents can have their say on playground improvements

Residents can have their say on playground improvements

Blacon residents are being given the chance to have their say on proposed improvements to two popular local playgrounds.

Plans have been drawn up to upgrade facilities at King George V Playing Fields and Meynell Place Playground in Blacon over the coming months.

Avenue Services, who manage both of the sites, want to install the latest play equipment to bring a brighter new look to the playgrounds, which are used by families across the neighbourhood.

Public consultations have been launched for each location with plans due to go on show at two events next month.

Representatives from Avenue Services and the contractors will be present on both occasions to answer questions and listen to comments and suggestions about the proposals.

The first consultation is at Meynell Place Playground on Wednesday 8 March between 9.30am and 5pm with the second at King George V Playing Fields in Blacon Avenue on Thursday 9 March, also from 9.30am to 5pm.

Paul Knight, Head of Avenue Services, said: “Both of these playgrounds are popular with Blacon families and we want to ensure that continues into the future by providing excellent facilities.

“We are keen to hear what people have to say about the plans and look forward to welcoming them to the consultation days.”
