Despite a hospital nearby and a school there is no dedicated children’s play area.

“The site spans almost 5,000 square feet and will cater to children of all ages and abilities,” he said.

“This will be a really important and welcome amenity for a growing area with an increasing number of young families and children,” said Cllr Tennyson.
