Improvement works at a number of parks in North Somerset are due to be carried out this summer.
Twelve projects, ranging from replacing children’s play equipment to repairing paths, have been identified by North Somerset Council.
It follows the award of a £37,118 grant to the council by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government to support “urgent” works in parks.
The projects are:
“This funding is particularly welcome as ongoing budget cuts have meant that little significant investment has been made in North Somerset’s parks in the last few years,” said Cllr Mike Bell, North Somerset Councillor for Weston-super-Mare Central Ward.
“We are targeting funds where there is an immediate need. The grant gives us a much-needed opportunity to replace decommissioned play equipment that has been removed for safety purposes and to repair old or damaged infrastructure.”1 Comment
