Find out about new play area plan for Westlands

Residents in Westlands in Droitwich can vote for what they would like to see included in a new children's playground for the area while lending a hand sprucing up the current one.

On Wednesday, 27 October Platform Housing staff will be joined by volunteers to help give the play equipment a new coat of paint and generally tidy up the area.

They will also be unveiling plans for a new play area, funded by Platform and Wychavon as part of the Droitwich West project. Residents will be able to talk to staff about what they would like to see included and look at some of the potential new play equipment.

Replacing the play area was one of the top asks from residents as part of the recent Droitwich West Summit, which brought together people from a range of different organisations to agree an action plan to improve the area.

Anyone who would like to take part in the playground clean up, or discuss ideas for the new play area, should turn up between 10am and 2pm on Wednesday, 27 October.

Chris Colley, Community Officer for Platform Housing, said: "Feedback from the community is really important to us, so we would like as many people as possible to come along and tell us what they would like to see in the new play area. If anyone can spare a couple of hours to help tidy up the existing playground while we work on the new one then please join us, everyone is welcome."

Cllr Chris Day, Executive Board Member for Housing, Health and Wellbeing on Wychavon District Council, said: "Improving the play area was one of residents' top priorities identified at the Droitwich West Summit and I'm delighted that together with Platform we have been able to get moving on this project so quickly." 

The current Westlands play area is set to be replaced.
