A consultation event regarding enhanced play facilities at the seafront will be held on Thursday 6th April between 2pm and 7pm at the Community Centre, Sea Road.
The Parish Council has been looking at a range of options to provide more interesting play facilities for children of all ages at the Seafront. The equipment will be paid for by Developers’ Contributions received by the Parish Council and which must be spent on enhancing open space facilities.
The areas concerned are firstly an area for young families to the east of the Needles Eye Café and the car park and secondly to the west of the Needles Eye Café of sufficient land to provide a worthwhile play area for slightly older children. This is in addition to the existing toddler play area. The Parish Council has decided not to include a skate/ scooter park or a zip wire.
Proposals setting out options for various types of equipment commonly used and valued in neighbouring towns and villages will be on display and the Parish Council invites the whole community to come along and give their views.
Pennyfarthing Homes have announced a new date for their consultation event for 46 new homes on the MOS1 site near the Primary school:
3pm – 7pm
Thursday 9 February 2017
Milford on Sea Baptist Church Hall, The Manse, Wayside Close, Milford on Sea SO41 0RN
