A play park in Salisbury could see security fencing
go up if the council decides to move the area after noise complaints from a local doctors.
Salisbury City Council put in a new play area in Queen Elizabeth Gardens last summer but doctors at Harcourt Medical Centre say it is much closer to the centre than the old one and the noise is disturbing.
However, if the council decides to move the play park it could cost the taxpayer £30,000 to knock down. An alternative option would be to build a noise barrier which would cost £12,000 while moving a piece of equipment can cost anywhere between £15,000 and £18,000.
Cllr Joe Rooney told the Salisbury Journal: "Whatever decision we come to I don’t think we can be worried about the cost. We have created that situation, unwittingly, but it’s our fault not theirs."
Elsewhere, a play area in Bishop Stortford is to get a £50,000 makeover after donations by residents, the council and local businesses.
