Please can you help?
Last year we submitted an application to EHDC to upgrade the play area at Five Heads Rec, but sadly this was unsuccessful. This year we are looking to submit a new updated application.
Again, we need your feedback!
Complete upgrade of the entire play area (but not the roped walk).
The play area was installed during the 90's and is ageing and rapidly approaching the end of its useful life. The play area can be replaced with up-to-date equipment appropriate to the youngsters using it.
The major part of the cost will be applied for out of the Community Infrastructure Levy - Neighbourhood Portion, available in East Hampshire for the provision of Open Spaces Projects. The Parish Council will provide the balance of funding from funds allocated for that purpose.
Access to open space and play areas is essential to the mental and physical health and well-being of local youth. This is a built up area of Horndean. At a Community level, such areas assist with place making and providing for a sustainable community.
Please respond to Horndean Parish Council to support and comment on the proposal by 11th March 2022. Proposed designs will be posted when received. The application has to be received by East Hampshire District Council by the 18th March 2022.
