Council launches consultations on play area refurbishments
PUBLIC consultations have been launched to give residents a chance to have a say on the refurbishments of play areas in Bilton and Brownsover.
Rugby Borough Council has confirmed plans to revamp the play areas in Apple Grove and Sorrel Drive, and now wants to hear from residents to help develop blueprints for the refurbishments.
Consultation packs have been delivered to the homes of residents living near the play areas, while the wider community can have a say by completing the online consultation forms on the council's website:
Cllr Howard Roberts, Rugby Borough Council portfolio holder for leisure and wellbeing, said: "We have a rolling programme of park and play area improvements in the borough, and public consultations play an important role in helping us to identify the improvements residents want to see.
"Feedback from consultations helps us draw up draft designs for the refurbishments, which we hope to share with residents later this year."
The consultations close at 5pm on Monday 27 September. The council plans to consult on the draft designs before the end of the year, with work scheduled to start on the refurbishments in the spring.
