New Play Equipment now open....

New Play Equipment now open....

Birstall Parish Council are pleased to announce that the new play equipment on School Lane playing fields is now complete and is open for the public to use.

The Parish Council wish to thank everybody for their patience with the delay in being able to open the slide but the safety of members of the public was paramount in this case and until they were completely satisfied it just couldn't be opened. More »

The delay was caused due to several issues that were identified after the Parish Council staff who carried out their own inspections after the equipment had been signed off by the contractors. The Parish Council staff were not completely satisfied with the finished product. The Clerk reported these concerns to the contractors and invited them to return to address some issues that had been identified, all of which took more time than the Parish Council anticipated.

The Clerk then requested that the contractors undertook an independent Post Installation Report which would identify any further issues that required some attention from the contractors, but more importantly it would provide a certificate of safety assurance to the Parish Council before opening it up to the public.

The report was received on Monday, 20 September 2021 and the Clerk asked the Estates Team to carry out a further maintenance inspection, after receiving their inspection report the Clerk was confident that it was now safe for members of the public to use, and the fencing was removed.

The Parish Council hope that users enjoy the new equipment and would welcome feedback from children and parents on this new experience. » Less
