Dover Street play area consultation

Closed 6 Aug 2021

Opened 26 Jul 2021

Results updated 11 Aug 2021

We invited residents to vote on their preferred option for the refurbishment of Dover Street children’s playground in Coley. We are pleased to announce the popular choice was the ‘ship’ themed multi-unit climbing frame and the see-saw. The existing playground is set to benefit from an £85K investment to refurbish the playground with new facilities suitable for toddlers through to juniors. In addition to the facilities put to public vote, the play area will also benefit from an accessible basket swing, improved surfacing, two benches and two rainbow picnic tables. Work will start on-site early October with the aim of completing by end of October 2021.


Dover Street play area is a small urban facility near to the town centre and is appreciated by the residents it serves. The council are taking the opportunity to replace existing equipment and surfaces that have reached the 'end of their life'.

The new and improved facility will include a good mix of robust equipment targetted for users up to the age of 12 years old.

We would really like to know which is your preferred scheme.

Why your views matter

The council value the public's views and their opinion on the designs proposed for the site.

What happens next

Once the consultation process has been completed and the public votes have been counted, the preferred choice will be confirmed for installation.

The response to this consultation and selection of the winning option will be announced on 12 August 2021.

It is expected that work will start on site in early October 2021 with the aim to be completed by the end of October 2021.
