  • Woodthorpe Green Play Area

    A major concern highlighted from our original Survey, early in 2016 was the condition of the Woodthorpe Green Play Area. After presenting this to the council we are pleased that things are now moving forward with Executive Member (Cllr Keith Aspden) allocating £17,000 towards improvement for the Woodthorpe Green play area.The local councillors have topped this amount up to £30,000 from the Dringhouses and Woodthorpe committee fund Ward Team.
    This is excellent news and the Woodthorpe York Community Group have assisted the Council in collating suggestions as to how the funding is to be spent. Then presented the final designs for the community to vote for their favourite. Watch this space for the winner.
    In addition to this design, we have also applied for an accessible roundabout to be funded by Yorwaste and the Aviva community funds to for the goal posts on the green to be replaced.
