A second children's playground in Leasowe will require play area fencing in the near future after Wirral Council gave the go-ahead to plans.

The council voted seven to five in favour of pressing ahead with the plans following a long-running dispute over funding.

Money was given 14 years ago to the council after the cash was not used to build a new playground in the area. However, the money is now being put to good use, Wirral Globe reported.

Planning chairman Councillor David Elderton told the news provider that he has heard representations "on behalf of residents".

He added: "In the final vote it was decided the development of the play area should proceed as legally required under the terms of the agreement attached to this application when approval was granted some years ago."

Chard recently unveiled new play area fencing and equipment as its £23,870 Snowdon Park was completed this month.
