Making a difference where you live

Making play a priority

We are spending £400,000 over the next two years on bringing these vital outdoor areas up to the high standards residents expect.

The work has already started with plans being drawn up and user group consultation underway.

Play areas in Ditchling, Newhaven, Lewes, Peacehaven, Seaford, South Chailey and Ringmer will all see upgrades and equipment replaced.

The play areas will be designed to be all inclusive and to provide a range of play facilities for different age groups.

Councillor Zoe Nicholson, Deputy Leader of Lewes District Council, said:

“Local play areas in Lewes district have suffered from underinvestment and I have made it a top priority to commit significant funding to improving them for local families.”
