Back in June the Parish Council placed an order with HAGS for phase one of the play park renovation. The new equipment includes two new climbing frames – one for toddlers and one for school-age children – a spinning bowl, seesaw and trampoline.
The project has been slightly delayed, for reasons beyond our control, but we are pleased that installation is now going ahead.
Contractors will arrive on Tuesday 14 August to start clearing the site, and work will continue for about 3 weeks.
Access to the play park will be from the nearest entrance, off Farman Crescent, and we would appreciate your cooperation in keeping the cul de sac clear of parked cars so that the play equipment installers can carry on with their work and there is no risk of damage to resident’s vehicles.
The existing play park will be closed during the construction works. We’re sorry for the inconvenience, but think the end result will be worth waiting for! Click on the image for a larger view of how the play park will look when phase one is completed.
Cotswold District Council is currently undertaking a community governance review following a request made by Upper Rissington Parish Council earlier in the year.
The review looks to increase the overall number of councillors on the Parish Council and, possibly, the introduction of parish wards. Letters and a consultation response form went out to all households in the Parish recently.
If you have not received your copy of the letter, or would like another, then we have placed copies here on the website (below).
The closing date for the comments is 20th September 2018.
The process is that if 10 residents request an election then that is how the position will be filled. If an election is not called then the Parish Council may fill the vacancy by co-option, and will invite interested local residents to contact us for details nearer the time.
