Playtime will soon be much more fun in Buckingham now work is nearing completion on a new £65,000 play area.

The Stratford Fields play space is being transformed with a range of challenging and exciting new equipment suitable for two to 14-year-olds.

It will include a nest swing, climbing net, spinning dish, rope bridge, toddler’s seesaw and other great equipment. 

The new play area has been funded by Aylesbury Vale District Council and Section 106 funds, where consent for planning permission is dependent on the developer funding community-based leisure projects.

It is hoped the facility will be ready just in time for the February half-term break – weather permitting.

The design is the result of consultation with local residents, stakeholders including Buckingham Town Council and, most importantly, local schoolchildren, who have influenced the choice of equipment and layout.

Councillor David Thompson, Cabinet Member for Leisure, said: “It is really important that children and young people in the district have quality play areas and this one in Stratford Fields will be fantastic for families in the area. The input of local residents and schoolchildren was vital to make sure this play area is a popular, well used focal point for youngsters in this community now and for many years to come.”
