Inspection and maintenance
The play equipment is inspected by our staff on a weekly basis but we are grateful to members of the public who inform us of faults, damage or hazards as soon as they occur. Please contact the Council on 01767 681491 to report any problems.
All play areas are visited at least once a week to remove all litter and broken glass. If we receive reports of broken glass, damaged equipment, etc between the scheduled visits we will arrange for the play area to be visited again, please contact the Council on 01767 681491.
Each year all play areas receive an independent inspection to make sure that they meet the British and European safety standards.
Sometimes damaged play equipment can be repaired straight away. If this is not possible then the damaged item will be immobilised until it is possible to do the repair.
If the repair requires the replacement of a standard item that is held in stock, a repair will be carried out within 2 working days.
Repairs requiring a non-standard item will take longer as parts will usually have to be ordered. In these cases we will try to complete repairs as quickly as possibly, but this is dependent on the delivery time from our suppliers.
To report a problem with a play area please the Council on 01767 681491.
