The Council held a preliminary consultation at the end of 2016 and received feedback from over 300 people which has been used to inform our design brief.
We held an assembly at Crossley Street School, children at St. Joseph's designed their 'perfect' playground for homework, Wetherby High School students completed an online survey in their IT lessons and feedback was received from 150 members of the public.
The design brief includes feedback broken down in to four sections; Key Stage 1 (ages 4-7), Key Stage 2 (ages 7-11), Key Stage 3 (ages 11-15) and adults so that the playground companies can see what appeals to the different age groups in our town.
The design brief was sent to 8 playground equipment suppliers who then visited the Council's three sites at the start of October 2017 and used the information in the document and their experiences on the site to inform their proposals.
