Play Areas

Visits to inspect children's play areas will be a minimum of once per week. Where equipment is reported as dangerous we aim to make safe within 8 hours (during office hours) or the next working day outside of these hours. In some instances, this means that certain equipment is fenced off to prevent it from being used.

To report any problem, please contact Envirocall on 0191 278 78 78 or complete the online reporting and tracking form.
In 2019-20 we will be investing in a number of play areas across the city to improve the play value.
