Test Valley Borough Council secures homelessness grant

Local residents have from now until Monday, 14 April to have their say about what improvements should be made to Charlton Lakes play area.

The park is due to be refurbished later in the Spring and the Council would like user feedback to help inform the plans for refurbishment.

Comments can be made using the form available online at www.testvalley.gov.uk/consultationportal, or by completing the questionnaire and leaving it at the Lakeside Pavilion, Charlton.

Portfolio Holder for Community & Leisure, Councillor Tony Ward, said: “A series of exciting play area projects are planned for 2014/15 which will include refurbishments of a number of play areas across the Borough as well as the development of two new sites at the Picket Twenty housing development.

“We want local users to tell us how they would like these playgrounds to be improved, and what sort of play equipment is the most popular so that the work we carry out will continue to benefit children for many years to come.”

The next consultation will be for Saxon Fields Play Area and will go live on Monday 10 April.
