Play area fencing could be installed in an attempt to improve up to 12 outdoor children's spaces in Yorkshire, it has been announced.

According to the Halifax Courier, some £500,000 has been set aside by Calderdale Council to make the playgrounds more comfortable for kids over the next five years.

Community groups linked to the 12 play areas have agreed to ensure that they are maintained once the improvements have been carried out and new equipment installed.

Council leader Janet Battye said: "In these hard times, with many families finding it difficult to afford a holiday, we want to give children something constructive and at the same time engage with the community."

The Gazette recently reported that residents in the area of Bishopsgarth in the north-east have fought for the development of a new playground for children, which could see new play area fencing installed.
