Conservative led RBC has published a draft masterplan for the refurbishment of the play area in Glaramara Close and now wants feedback from residents before moving ahead with the plans.
The council plans to install a host of new play equipment, including an expanded embankment slide, basket swing, a range of swing seats, wheelchair-friendly roundabout, trampoline, and a climbing frame with bridge and slide.
Cllr. Howard Roberts, Rugby Borough Council portfolio holder for leisure and wellbeing, said in a RBC press release, "The feedback we received from residents during the first public consultation has helped us draw up a masterplan for the refurbishment, so now we want to hear the views of residents before finalising the plan and pushing ahead with the project."
Cllr. Wayne Rabin who represents the ward said, “I’m pleased that Glaramara Close play area is to receive refurbishment as part of a continuing review of play parks in North Rugby. Research shows that access to good leisure and recreational facilities has significant positive impacts on physical and mental heath and wellbeing. I’m hoping that other play areas in Newbold on Avon and Brownsover receive similar attention. I’ll be working to highlight this”
The masterplan consultation closes at 5pm on Wednesday 11 August.
