Contractor completes £150k play area refurb project in Lincoln

Contractors KOMPAN have now completed a £150,000 refurb project to update and enhance Whitton’s Park for the City of Lincoln.

Funding for this project came from a developer contribution of £152,413 held by the city council, which could be spent only on play equipment in the West End of Lincoln.

Whitton’s Park was highlighted as the only viable option in the area for the enhancement of play opportunities in the West End, using the funds allocated.

This play area has been developed through collaboration with the local communities that it will serve, the Long Leys Residents Association and West End Residents Association .

Cllr Bob Bushell, Portfolio Holder for Remarkable Place at City of Lincoln Council said: “We are very pleased with this positive enhancement to a much-used play area in the city.

“Over the past two years, we recognise play areas have been essential for the mental health of young people visiting and enjoying the site and we are proud to re-open this area for families to enjoy for many years to come.”

Jon Davies, Secretary for the Long Leys Residents Association added: “LLRA wishes to thank the contractor and the city council project team for delivering this brilliant playpark upgrade which will be enjoyed by children from Long Leys, the West End and Castle Ward for many years to come. LLRA’s thanks also go to all those who contributed to the original consultation on the playpark, the group of parents who helped put together the project proposal, and our neighbours from the West End Residents Association who provided support throughout the project.”
