We the undersigned petition Reigate and Banstead Borough Council to ___Save Keats Avenue Playground, and show support for other playgrounds____. More details

More details from petition creator

Reigate & Banstead Borough Council has proposed to remove Keats Avenue Playground. After 25 years it will soon need maintenance, and they are proposing to remove it, than invest money either replacing just the rotten wood or renewing the equipment. Instead they favour developing Wordsworth Mead playground, at a cost of £40’000.

Recreational areas for our children should be preserved; this is especially true since new housing developments have smaller gardens that wouldn’t be dreamt of 50 years ago.

Council Tax is expensive; this playground is financially insignificant & will probably last in excess of 25 years. The playground was originally built by the housing developers 25 years ago.

Keats Avenue playground is a SAFE area for children to play, overlooked by dozens of houses; its small and un-intrusive to homeowners.

Childhood is precious and should be preserved, outdoor activities should be encouraged.

Please pledge your support to save this and other recreational areas.
