Multi-Use Games Area and play equipment plan for Edith Weston Recreation Ground
Plans have been drawn up for a new area dedicated to outdoor games and play.
Edith Weston Recreation Ground, a registered charity, has applied to Rutland County Council for the multi-use games area facility and playground equipment at the corner of Manton Road and King Edward's Way.
The application includes a painted surface with goals at each end and a netball post to one side.
If granted by the council, two types of swings will be added to the recreation ground, and wooden play equipment comprising slides towers, bridges and climbing features.
The plan has received positive feedback from residents, with Susannah Bartram who lives in the village saying: "I one-hundred per cent support the park to be rebuilt and used as it was always intended by all and for all.
"We have a lovely group of children varying in ages that will benefit from an all-included and well thought out new play ground.
"I have three boys that are really missing the amenity and are very much looking forward, along with many other children, to having a hardstanding area for football and basketball."
Simon Stephenson, who also lives in Edith Weston, told the council: "I think this is fantastic idea as we have many children in the village and this is a safe environment for them to play."
Having brought up three children in the village where he has lived since 1985, Malcolm Earnshaw added: "I fully support this as a contributor and for those today with young families."
The application and views submitted by residents will be decided by Rutland County Council.
