Crawley Borough Council is working on a scheme to expand the current outdoor play area. This is an exciting opportunity to include new facilities for six-twelve year olds and improve the quality of play for local children.
As part of the expansion, extensive ground works will need to be carried out which will result in the removal of six trees and recently planted bulbs. However, seven replacement trees and daffodil bulbs will be replanted on adjacent land close to Broadfield Youth and Community Centre.
We are currently consulting with residents, Councillors and key stakeholders in the area and are inviting comments on the five possible designs to ensure we’re making the right decisions for you.
Please tell us your views on the designs using our online form by Friday 16 October 2015.
