Decision details

Fairview Play Area Enhancement Adlington

Decision Maker: Executive Member (Planning and Development)

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To approve the funding identified for the enhancement of Fairview Play Area.


Reasons for recommendations:

The current safety surfacing needs replacement, it has been patched, has holes in it, has been filled with alternative materials and has shrunk at the edges. Rather than take the old surface to tip, the chosen method of resurfacing will overlay with Notts Sport Childsplay sand filled carpet. This is manufactured locally in Leigh and has an 8 year warranty.


Alternative options considered and rejected:

To replace the safety surfacing with wet pour again. This was rejected as it could incur similar acts of vandalism. The sand filled carpet is more durable and fire retardant.
