Young Chorley people to have say on play area
Young people have had their say on improvements to play facilities on Adlington’s Jubilee Recreational Ground.
Chorley Council held a drop-in session for young people at Fairview community centre last Thursday to discuss their opinions and ideas of what they want to see in place of the currently outdated equipment.
Funding for improvements to Jubilee Recreational Ground has come from contributions made by Grove Farm housing development in Adlington as every new residential development contributes towards open space or play.
The feedback from the young people will be put forward to play design companies who will send back plans which will then be voted for by the public in January.
The winning design will be built and is expected to be opened for use in April 2014.
Councillor Bev Murray, who oversees park and open spaces at Chorley Council, said: “Previous consultations have shown that a skate park, dynamic equipment and football area are the most popular aspirations for the young people but the council are keen to get as many responses as possible in order to get a true representation of the general opinion within the Adlington youth.
“By taking into consideration the thoughts of the people who will use the equipment, we can ensure that whatever does get built will be well used and cared for within the local community.”
