Feedback is being sought on a £164,000 scheme to improve a dated play area in Whitehill & Bordon.

New goalposts, play equipment and an outdoor gym are among the facilities earmarked for the Hollybrook site off Apollo Drive.

The current facility is 14 years old and starting to show its age with residents enquiring about an upgrade earlier this year.

Developer cash will pay for the revamp with Cllr Andy Tree, deputy leader of EHDC and portfolio holder for Whitehilll & Bordon, signing off funds for the project last month.

He said: “This is a brilliant project which will be great fun for a lot of young people living in the area.” 

A six-week public consultation has been launched that will allow residents to give the feedback and suggestions either online or in person.

A spokesperson for the council said: “We want to make sure the refurbishment meets the needs of the local community, so we are asking for your views.

“Comments will help shape the specification and design of the area. The improvements and upgrade will enhance this vital community facility, and will be beneficial to the health and wellbeing of residents.”

Residents can speak to council staff in person at the Whitehill & Bordon Christmas Fair at the Forest Centre on Saturday, December 2, or take part in a five-minute consultation online.

The consultation closes at midday on December 20, to complete the form visit Whitehill Town Council has also been given close to £78,000 to improve its workshop and equipment store at Mill Chase recreation ground.
