A meeting held last night (September 6) by the Three Rivers Leisure and Wellbeing Committee unanimously supported the recommendations put before them.
They will proceed with the timetable (as detailed at 2.7 of the addendum to the main report) which includes submitting a planning application to Three Rivers District Council (TRDC) and the Planning Inspectorate for site 15A on Chorleywood Common.
TRDC will work in partnership with Chorleywood Parish Council and local school children and their families to produce a natural play space at site 15A, which complements their existing play elements, including climbing, rope play and sensory features.
The recommendations were carried with the support of the Parish Council.
Councillor Martin Trevett, who has been working to achieve a new play space for the children and families of Chorleywood for over 20 years welcomed the new spirit of cooperation from the Parish Council.
He expressed the hope “that another generation of children in Chorleywood would not grow up with inadequate play facilities.”
