FENLANDER: Residents to help council with design of new play area

PLANS are going ahead for a new play area in Dagless Way, March, and residents can help Fenland District Council with the design.

Anyone submitting their ideas on the sort of equipment that should be included could win a family swimming voucher worth about �10 for use at the George Campbell leisure centre.

FDC is particularly keen to hear the views of children in that part of town.

The consultation begins today (January 28) and continues until February 25. It includes a simple online survey – the first of its kind to be conducted by the council’s parks team - which is available now on www.surveymk.com/s/dagless_way_play.

All completed surveys with accompanying email addresses or phone numbers will be entered in a draw to win the family swim pass.

Residents’ views will also be sought at a roadshow presentation in Dagless Way on March 16. The final design is due to be drawn up by April 8, when it will be circulated to local residents and town and district councillors.

The new play area should open around late June. Four other play parks were introduced or revamped in March last year.

Cllr Peter Murphy, FDC’s portfolio holder responsible for parks, said: “It is really important for us to know what residents would like to see there – and particularly what the children themselves want. So I’d urge anyone living in the Dagless Way area to fill in the online survey to help us provide the people of March with another play area of the sort of play park that will suit them.”
