Freedom of information request response - 06640
The Association of Play Industries (API) has previously carried out FOI research to establish the extent to which public play areas are being retained, increased or reduced. We would like to update this research with a view to lobbying central government for funding. To that end, we would like to request the following information under the Freedom of Information Act:
- The amount expended in fiscal year 2019 (including any remaining forecasted spending) on public outdoor play facilities including capital, revenue and maintenance costs.
- The amount budgeted to be spent in fiscal year 2020 on public outdoor play facilities including capital, revenue and maintenance costs.
At this time the spend/allocated budget for the financial years is as follows:
2019/20 - £21,660 – Expected spend.
2020/21 - £28,730 – Allocated budget.
