Recreation Ground Consultation 2019
Additional equipment at the Recreation Ground Find out about our plans to improve the play equipment in the Recreation Ground! Share your views on those plans! North Somerset Council will be giving Banwell Parish Council Section 106 developer contribution of £19,000 from the Taylors Field Development (currently known as Bilbie Grange). This money has to be used to increase capacity of play equipment on the Recreation Ground at Westfield Road. The Parish Council is proposing to increase the amount of play equipment and improve existing equipment. Unfortunately, it cannot be used for Riverside Play Area which the Parish Council will be looking at after the water- logged area has been resolved. Previous ideas for the Recreation Ground have included; a zipline, seesaw, merry go round, teen shelter, climbing wall, picnic tables and path all the way around the field. Other suggestions include, outside ping pong table, play cabin, outdoor fitness equipment. Banwell Recreation Ground Trustees would welcome your views and comments about potential new equipment.
