Play Areas

The Council, for safety reasons, has removed three pieces of play equipment at Upper Barn Copse Play Area. This is an interim measure whilst we seek residents’ views on the future level and type of provision at this site. The online survey completed in February has now closed and survey results can be found here.

A further drop-in consultation event was held on Thursday 11 April at the Woodland Community Centre where key FAQ’s and maps where shared.


The FAQ's can be found here 


A full report will be taken to Full Council in May to determine the next steps.
