Five year playground refurbishment plan

Hastings Borough Council (HBC) is starting a five year programme of refurbishment to the play spaces within the town and the first phase of the work is scheduled for completion by the end of March this year.


The spaces which are scheduled for work are:

  • Waterside Close Play Space
  • Alexandra Park larger Play Space
  • Redmayne Drive Play Space
  • Bexhill Rd – Sophie’s play space

Some play spaces are being resurfaced deep cleaned redecorated or provided with new fence panels; others are having new equipment, some of it with funds raised by the local residents association. Other play spaces are scheduled for refurbishment in the next few years.

Colin Fitzgerald, lead councillor for environmental services said: “This is an essential programme of work, and our play spaces are a vital feature of our neighbourhoods. Without them some children would have nowhere to go for fresh air and exercise.

“We have consulted with residents on the larger projects. Resident associations have been undertaking some fundraising so that we can make our money go that bit further, and provide great spaces for our children to play in.”

HBC will keep residents informed about the opening and closing of play spaces while the work is being carried out, with signage at the play space, on their website and through Facebook.
