Middlemore play area consultation announced


People living in Daventry’s Middlemore estate and the surrounding areas are being urged to give their thoughts on whether they want a larger local play area, and if so what should be in it.

The current playground in Hidcote Way consists of various equipment such as climbing frames, swings and a cable slide.

However there is the possibility of increasing the equipment in the playground, which is owned by Daventry District Council, as developer funds are available for this purpose.

People can have their say by completing an online survey. Potential designs of an expanded play area for the site have also been drawn up by various companies and people will also be able to look at them online.

Councillor Alan Hills, portfolio holder for community, culture and leisure at Daventry District Council, said: “We are interested in getting the views of people in Middlemore and the surrounding areas as to whether they would like to see more play equipment in the park and if so, which potential design they would prefer.

“Once the consultation closes we will consider all the views we receive and make a decision on the way forward as to whether the park should be expanded, so I would encourage as many people as possible to have their say.”

To complete the survey and view the designs go to DDC’s website. The closing date for responses is October 18.
