Play area revamp plans for park saved from closure in Mapperley


Residents in Mapperley living near a park recently saved from the threat of closure can now look forward to a revamp of the play area.

Gedling Borough Council, who manage Haywood Road park and community centre, has launched a consultation for a new children’s play area after it was saved by a residents’ campaign.

The facilities were set to be sold to housing developers last year, but were then saved by Gedling Borough Council in October, after they responded to the concerns of hundreds of residents about its potential closure.

The park will now have a new lease of life and the council will be displaying proposed design plans at a consultation event at Haywood Road community Centre on Monday, April 23 between 4pm to 8pm.

The proposed plans include the installation of a children’s play area, a boundary fence, tree and shrub planting and levelling the surface of the site.

There are three proposed design schemes and the council are asking for comments and suggestions on the proposed schemes.

Local residents have already been informed about the consultation and the council are welcoming anyone who uses the park or potentially will in the future, to attend the consultation.

Councillor Peter Barnes, Portfolio Holder for Parks and Open Spaces said he is looking forward to now improving the facilities for residents.

He said: “It’s fantastic to see how far this park has come in such a short period of time.

“We have done exactly what our residents have asked us to do: we’ve stopped the park from being sold on to developers and we are transforming this space into something the whole community can enjoy.”
