BETTER play areas are on the way for Pendle's youngsters as Council bosses adopt a new strategy aimed at improving facilities.

Over the next ten years, Pendle Council hopes to develop existing playgrounds, multi-use games areas, skate parks and wheels parks and create new facilities for children and teenagers to use.

The Children's and Youth Play Area Strategy - which runs through until 2016 - came into effect from the start of April to guide the development of Council owned play provision.

The strategy comes about after a large amount of consultation with local primary, secondary and special schools and other key stakeholders across the Pendle district.

The 3 main aims of the strategy are to improve the quantity and quality of facilities and improve access to play areas. Additional resources will be made available over the coming 10 years to carry out a rolling programme of improvements.

Colin Patten, Services Manager for Pendle's Parks, said:

"We would like to thank all the people who assisted us in carrying out the surveys and for taking an interest in children's play facilities and also for their help in developing the second Park's Strategy."

Copies of the Children's and Youth Play Strategy are available from Marsden Hall Farm offices in Nelson.
