Dexter Road APG update event

Prior to submitting the planning application for Dexter Road Adventure Playground we held a public event on site. We presented our final proposal in light of the changes to the funding. (Click on image to enlarge)

The proposal was developed following the list of priorities set out by the users. It focuses on:

Modernising the current building and the provision of an external canopy. The building will allow the APG to support local community activities and provide a more welcoming, greener entrance to the site as well as a large sheltered outdoor area.
The design development of the play structures. Some images of our study models are below.

The concentration of the play structures in the central area and the provision of a large green open space. This will allow further development and expansion of the structures in the future as more funding becomes available.
