We have had to make the difficult decision to close the Melrose play area in order to protect the safety of residents and workers on the adjacent demolition site. These measures have been implemented with immediate effect due to recent serious anti-social behaviour in and around the vicinity of the play area.
The new RBH kick pitch located at Toad Lane will continue to be available for the community to use and there are also the fantastic play facilities available within Falinge Park.
The footpaths around the play area will mostly remain open; however, there may be some temporary diversions in place to protect the public from moving machinery and vehicles. Any such diversions will be clearly signposted.
We have hand delivered a letter to all residents in the neighbourhood so that they are aware of the closure.
