Victoria park play area is a very popular facility with local children. However the special surface is degrading and is only being patched with normal tarmac
Cllr Rufia Ashraf (St James) says “This play area has been repeatedly patched by the council after it has been brought to their attention many times. The play surface which is specifically designed for this type of environment needs to be replaced to provide a safe environment for the many children that use this area.
The young ambassadors from St James Primary School are not impressed.
Perhaps a better use of the tarmac would be on patching the pot holed roads and not play areas that need a specific surface”
