Play area fencing may be required in Leeds after two neighbourhoods were given funding for improvement works.

Around £230,000 has been made available overall, with a £130,000 playground to be created in Roundhay and a £100,000 plan to develop facilities in Kirkstall.

The local council, National Lottery and environment charity Groundwork helped contribute to the fund, reports the Yorkshire Evening Post.

Julia Wilson, who chairs Friends of Roundhay Park, told the news provider that the second playground is "much needed" for the local area.

"The skateboard park location was the most popular choice with park visitors because it is close to bus stops, and can also be easily expanded in the future when more funding becomes available for play provision at Roundhay Park," she explained.

Swindon Council could look into placing a new playground on green space in Pinehurst after a mother launched a campaign to replace the Citizens Advice Bureau building with facilities for children.
