Play equipment bid
NEW play equipment could be installed at a Portishead park later this year.
Portishead Town Council has set aside �30,000 for apparatus chosen by teenagers following calls for more play equipment for older children to be put in place in the town.
The items include a hamster wheel, a surfer and a large swing.
After a lengthy battle to gain landlord’s consent to site the equipment at the Lake Grounds, North Somerset Council has confirmed it will refuse permission for it be installed on its land at the seafront beauty spot.
Town council chairman Arthur Terry said: “In the light of this news it is my intention, at the next town council meeting, to propose that members look at spending the money on the same equipment at Brampton Park instead.”
