Sir Bobby Robson Play Park – Now open
Following ongoing concerns regarding the skate park and the soft surfaces in the play park, we are delighted to announce that these issues have now been addressed and the play park is now open.
To ensure the safety of everyone, the parks will be regularly inspected and the Police and the County Wardens will continue to patrol the parks to offer further support.
The ROSPA Inspections of all play parks was carried out and concerns reported.
Sir Bobby Robson Play Park Report identified the skate park was in need of some attention and pleased to say this work has now been carried out. To also keep this maintained we have agreed a Service Level Agreement to continue the twice yearly maintenance. Durham Spray Paints will be adding to this with art work as part of a Youth Project Parish Council agreed and further information will be provided by Durham Spray Paints in the next few weeks.
The soft surfaces have already previously seen repairs and so an alternative solution has been suggested, costed and agreed by the Parish Council. Work will commence soon as possible. As these areas are a hazard the park will remain closed due to further shrinkage identified.
Wicksteed have now been appointed to complete the above works which we are hoping to have done by the end of June 2021. We are in constant contact with Wicksteed and as soon as we have a date for the works to be completed we will update the website.
Quebec Play Park has a similar issue with the soft surfaces and work will be taking place soon as possible.
Anti-social Behaviour concerns have been passed to the County Wardens and the Police and further support over the next few weeks and high visibility patrols are currently carried out.
