A new children's playground on The Gallops

Adur & Worthing Councils' park refurbishment programme has spruced up The Gallops park play area, west of Vale Drive.

The parks department conducted a public consultation process, including pupils from Vale School, Findon Valley Residents' Association and ward councillors.

The agreed plan was the overriding favourite of all consulted.

These improvements are funded by a £103,900 budget provision from the 2015/16 Capital Investment Programme, which includes £30,000 of contributions from developers.

Andy Edwards, Adur & Worthing Councils head of environment, said: "We are very proud of the refurbishment work we have been able to undertake over the Adur & Worthing district in the past 12 months. Including this latest project, we have invested just under £334,000 so far in new play area facilities and I am delighted to announce these exciting plans for The Gallops.

"The consultation process with the FVRA, and of course the pupils at Vale School, were key to realising this project. Their input and enthusiasm has been a real driving force and a pleasure to observe."
