YOUNGSTERS have the chance to help design a new playground in Fareham.

A new play area is set to be built in Titchfield at Abbey Meadows and Fareham Borough Council are seeking residents to help with the design using an online game.

The game is a way for children and their families to tell the council what their dream playground would look like.

Executive Member for Leisure and Community, Cllr Sue Bell, said: “Abbey Meadows will include 15 hectares of open space and feature a brand new natural style play area to complement its surroundings.

" I think it would make it really special for the children who will be using the park to tell us what they would like to see there.

"Not only will they get the benefit, they will help us build a play area that will be enjoyed by children of all ages and abilities for years to come.”

Children from both local and special educational needs schools are invited to share their ideas to ensure that inclusive equipment is incorporated into the design.

The new play area will be located along the A27 on Southampton Road and is set to open next year.

The deadline for responses is Monday 8 October.
