Residents asked to help finalise plans for Brownsover play area revamp

Rugby Editorial 28th Nov, 2022   0

A REVAMP of a play area in Brownsover is moving ahead – and residents are being asked to help finalise the plans.

Rugby Borough Council has published a blueprint for the refurbishment of the play area in Sorrel Drive.

Proposals include a range of new play equipment, including combination swings for toddlers, swings for older children, a wide embankment slide, a toddler climbing frame, an inclusive rocking roundabout and a spinner.

The plans also include the refurbishment of the play area’s elephant ‘springy’, with the option of adding another animal springy, or replacing the springy with an inclusive see-saw.

Landscaping work included in the proposed revamp includes new steel mesh fencing, metal seating and rubber safer surfacing, with existing trees and shrubs retained.

The council’s leisure and wellbeing spokesman Coun Howard Roberts said: “The plans for the proposed refurbishment have been drawn up following a previous consultation, so we’re keen to hear feedback from residents before finalising our plans and pushing ahead with the project.

“Consultations play an important part in our rolling programme of improvements to the borough’s parks and play areas, so I’d urge residents to contribute to the consultation and have a say.”

Visit to view the play area plans and take part in the consultation before the closing date of Monday January 2.

The council plans to start work on the refurbishment next summer.
