Merebank Playground Improvement

Residents and users of the existing facilities in Beare Green have been invited to take part in a public consultation to help decide what the proposed improvements to Merebank Recreation Ground playground will look like.

The improvements will see the existing wooden balance beam and wobble board from the fenced play area removed and replaced with new, more modern, challenging and fun play equipment.

Participants were asked to choose their top three of the designs put forward by play companies in order of first, second and third choice. Copies of the designs were available to view at the Community Centre in Merebank.  

The voting closed on Monday 24 August 2020. The votes will be counted and the winning design chosen. The successful play company will install the new items of equipment this autumn. More information will appear here when available.
