Regarding
Children's Play Areas
Request

I am writing to obtain information relating to the number of playgrounds closed over the last 5 calendar years.

By closed I mean closed down, closed due to the land being sold, or land redeveloped leading to the loss of the play area.

Please provide the number playgrounds lost per calendar year since 2014.

For each year please also outline your budgeted maintenance spend on children’s play areas.

Looking ahead for the next calendar year please provide the number of play areas, if any, that have been earmarked for closure.
