Views Wanted On Plans For Roffey Play Area

HDC LogoHorsham District Council is working with a number of residents in Roffey to make much needed improvements to the younger children’s play area at Beech Road.  The Council has put together three designs and would like residents to comment on these plans to help inform the final decision as to what design should go ahead.

The designs show schemes costing up to £46,000, but the Council (dependent on the outcome of a funding application) is only currently able to fund up to £24,000, which will provide a new multi-play unit, a new set of toddler swings, a path and a replacement fence instead of the dilapidated wall.

All comments should be sent to by Wednesday 19 December.

Cllr Jonathan Chowen, Horsham District Council’s Cabinet Member for Arts, Heritage and Leisure, said:

“I hope that anyone with an interest in the play area in Beech Road takes this opportunity to have their say on these new and exciting plans.  It will be great to see how this play area develops in the future and how these much needed improvements will make for a better environment for the local children to enjoy.”

The plans can be viewed by visiting the Horsham District Council website ( by searching ‘current play projects’ in the top task bar.

The Council would also like to hear from anyone who could help local residents apply for additional funding (through an application to Biffa or Big Lottery) to complete the play scheme, which would include an extra roundabout, play mound and trail.
