Still time to vote for Colts Close scheme

Still time to vote for Colts Close scheme

Parishioners who live near to and use Colts Close Recreation Ground have until the end of the month to tell the Council which of two potential play and fitness schemes they would like to see developed on the community green space.

Five play providers were invited to submit plans for the site, following a public consultation exercise to find out what new facilities people would like to see there and, of those, two have been shortlisted for further public feedback.

Each of the potential schemes includes a multi-play unit for 5 to 12 year olds, a set of family-friendly gym equipment, a basketball hoop, new seating and picnic provision, plus a new tarmac path which will allow people to cross the space without having to walk through the existing children's play area.

In addition, each scheme will turn the paths into a mini scooter and bike track, with 'road' markings for added interest, and each will also include a revamp of the existing well-used and much-loved pre-school play equipment.

The new facilities will be paid for with S106 developer contributions made available as a result of new homes being built around Sunloch Close.

Plans for each scheme can be viewed in the attachments below and will also be put on display at Burbage Millennium Hall until Saturday February 29.

People are invited to tell the Council which scheme they like best, either by emailing info@burbage-council.co.uk or by voting at Millennium Hall.

Feedback will be considered by the Council's Open Spaces Development Working Party, which will make a recommendation for a preferred contractor to be decided by the Council's F&GP committee in March.
