Families in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, have welcomed the news that security fencing
will be put up to signal the start of redevelopment work on a play area.
The site in Henderson Grove is to be subject of a £74,000 makeover to boost the currently outdated children's facility. The city's council has received money from developers under a section 106 planning agreement with work set to begin immediately.
Councillors have detailed arrangements that will see a new rope swing, skateboard ramp and a 25-metre long zip line. As part of the work the existing equipment will be re-painted and the broken security fencing will be fixed or replaced.
Residents will be able to give their views on what else could be done on the site as the council has opened a consultation on the play area.
Councillor Ruth Rosenau, cabinet member for regeneration, told the Sentinel: "A lot of thought has gone into the idea, but we have to make sure people are aware of the changes, and that they can have their say on the plan."
Stoke City Council recently faced difficulties over fencing designed to reduce anti-social behaviour in Palmers Green due to a lack of funding.
