Save Park View play area in Broseley from closure
0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!
Park View play area was established by Broseley residents around 50 years ago. A lot of community spirit was shown and the equipment was fundraised for.
In 2015 the park was closed by Broseley Town Council until further notice. At a full council meeting, councillors at the time made the decision to decommission it as a play area. This wasnt communicated well to the public. Residents assumed it was a temporary closure.
The park equipment has been left to deteriorate so would need some TLC and investment to bring it back to life. But there are many grants and funding opportunities that could assist with this. And with a proper management plan i am confident the issues of vandalism and antisocial behaviour that existed some years ago would be tackled. One action would be ensuring the site was locked up at certain times which local residents have volunteered to do.
Park View is an item on the agenda of the Estates Committee meeting to be held this Tuesday 15th. Therefore, we are up against the clock to get as many signatures as possible in the meantime to request that the current councillors discuss and seriously reconsider the decision made to close it by previous councillors back in 2015. Our councillors are the only people with the power to reverse this decision.
Please show your support to help get this area back open to the community for all to enjoy - before its too late and it gets taken away from us. Many have fond childhood memories of here and we hope that continues for generations to come.
