Paignton launches online survey for £500k park plans

Plans for a £500,000 play park are out for public consultation in Paignton.

Residents are being asked to give their views on what type of park children would like to play in and where it should go.

Torbay Council and the Paignton Town Community Partnership are applying to the Big Lottery Fund for a grant of up to £450,000.

Designs are currently being drawn up on a natural theme to tie in with Torbay's National Geopark status.

The accolade was awarded to Torbay in 2007 in recognition of its rich geological, historical and cultural heritage and the story of its coastline.

Elements of this story would be built into the park design so visitors can learn about the area's development.

One of the conditions of the grant is the park must be new, not a refurbished old park.

The two sites suggested are Torbay Park or Paignton Green.

Complete the survey online at Paignton Play Park Survey or call 01803 208831.

I will not be importing oaks this season. Will you?

I find myself in a difficult situation. A few weeks ago I was fortunate to be present to hear details of imminent changes to regulations concerning Oak Processionary Moth (OPM) and oak trees. I heard details, asked questions and probed the implications of these changes. That may not sound like a difficult position to be in, yet I am uneasy.
