The Town Council are conducting a survey following a number of complaints in recent years regarding the play equipment in Severn Park. Local residents and visitors alike have suggested that this rather tired looking play equipment is refurbished or replaced altogether and also to investigate the possibility of installing an adult outdoor exercise area that could be used free of charge by local residents and visitors alike.
The Town Council acknowledges that this play equipment is now the most dated in Bridgnorth but would point out that Severn Park is subject to a wider review with plans to redevelop this area and to incorporate a new visitor centre including cafeteria and toilets which would mean relocating the play area to a new site.
The Town Council is also hoping to secure S106 developer funding contributions from Shropshire Council which is money set aside to provide community projects.
The Town Council believes that this facility would benefit the whole community and especially teenagers and those that are not already fortunate enough to be members of an indoor facility as well as encouraging active participation by the Park’s many visitors and would welcome public opinion and feedback from local residents regarding this proposal.
Local residents and visitors to Severn Park are invited to post their views, for and against, to: The Town Clerk, Bridgnorth Town Council, College House, 4 St Leonards Close, Bridgnorth WV16 4EJ by Wednesday 18th of January 2017.
