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.
