Brighton & Hove City Council are working closely with Friends of Queen’s Park (FoQP) and members the local community to develop a questionnaire, for the local community to have their say on what a revamped playground should look like. The questionnaire is to be posted on the Council’s consultation portal and, as soon as the consultation is open for responses, FoQP will make an announcement to encourage participation. The analysis of the results will inform the commissioning process and the key play equipment that will be installed in the first phase of the playground refurbishment. Special attention is being given to the durability of materials being used, how they blend with the environment and, importantly, accessibility for children and young people with disabilities.
The revitalisation of the Queen’s Park play playground is part of an ambitious £3 million Council scheme aimed at bringing 42 playgrounds across the city up to date.
The Friends of Queen’s Park have joined forces with the Queen’s Park Tennis Club to purchase a debribrillator.
The life-saving equipment is to be fixed to the exterior wall of the tennis clubhouse and first aid and training sessions in its use will be announced once the installation has been completed.
