Residents living in the area around Northwood Acres will shortly be receiving a letter from East Devon District Council containing the following information:

‘Dear Cranbrook Resident, As you live near the site of the new Northwood Acres play area, I wanted to provide an update following my letter in December. As you may remember, the opening of the play area had to be postponed due to the weather conditions at the time making the ground unsuitable for the landscaping works to settle and for the area to dry out.

It is now planned for the Consortium to include a path and extra matting which will improve the play area, but these works cannot be done until the condition of the ground improves. We await the current weather conditions to improve to commence the works, therefore we are hoping that the play area will now be open in April.

We will continue to keep residents updated on progress and look forward to being able to announce the new date when the play area will be open and ready for use.

Kind regards

Miss Jamie Buckley, Community Engagement and Funding Officer, East Devon District Council’
