Council wants residents’ views on upgrades of Fareham play areas

TWO more of Fareham Borough Council’s play areas are about to be revamped and it is asking for residents’ views on how they can be improved.

The public consultation on the Kites Croft play area, Titchfield Common, joins that for the Kenwood Road facility in Portchester  reported last week in The Globe.

General improvements to Kites Croft play area will include re-painting the equipment, pressure washing, and repairing surfacing where necessary.

In addition, the council states it may be able to install new equipment to help make the play area more interactive and inclusive.

And so Executive Member for Leisure and Community, Councillor Sue Walker, is asking for parents to contribute their views because: “Playing outdoors is so important to children, and that’s why we are asking for ideas and suggestions to help make this play area more inclusive and fun for everyone.”

The Kites Croft play area consultation is open until Monday, March 7, and the online survey can be accessed at:

It is the same online address for access to the consultation on the Kenwood Road play area but it closes on Monday, February 28.

The refurbishment of both play areas is expected to be completed in the autumn.

In total, 32 of the borough council’s 46 play areas will have been upgraded since 2015. The full list is available HERE.
