Help create new Seaford play areas

Seaford playgrounds

With the finishing touches being made to the new Bell Lane play area in Lewes, Lewes District Council is now putting the focus on The Peverells and Aquila Park in Seaford.

As part of a £400,000 investment, the council is transforming 20 play areas across the district and wants to hear from people in Seaford with their ideas on the designs and new equipment.

Over 100 people, including many children, took part in the consultation on the Bell Lane play area and the council hopes even more residents will have their say on The Peverells and Aquila Park.

Councillor Julie Carr, Cabinet Member for Open Spaces, said:

“The enthusiasm shown by so many residents for the work we did in Lewes was fantastic and I’m sure we’ll get a similarly strong response in Seaford.

“Play areas are so important to local communities and this is an opportunity to help create a special place that generations of young people will visit and enjoy.”

New play areas are also planned for Ditchling, Peacehaven, South Chailey and Ringmer, with all of them designed to be inclusive and provide a range of play facilities for different age groups.
