Residents who read our regular FOCUS newsletters will know that as well as successfully arguing for a toddler friendly slide at Bath Lane, Councillor Katrina Trott has explained that improvements are also planned for the Eastern Parade children’s play area during the current financial year 2018/19. This is part of the ongoing 5-year programme to refurbish and improve all 43 children’s play areas.
74 residents responded to the Eastern Parade play area consultation, the majority asking for a large, themed multi-climbing unit to be installed. It is reported that work should begin next Spring with the play area being completed by Summer 2019.
Katrina has previously pointed out to council officers the need for a 'dropped kerb’ on Eastern Parade to allow easier access to the play area for pushchairs and wheelchairs. Investigation is continuing.
