Heaton residents press for play area
9:37am Wednesday 28th August 2013 in News
A PETITION calling for a children’s play area and a permanent green space near Devonshire Road will be handed in to councillors tonight.
The authority has since cut the grass, prompting increased use from locals, and the group wants it to be turned into a permanent green space.
And a petition with more than 150 signatures will be handed over before the meeting of full council at Bolton Town Hall.
A residents’ spokesman said: “The number of people who have started using the field since the grass was cut have increased dramatically and some of the local children have been able to go blackberrying again.
“Overall we would just like to have this a safe, green, space for children to be children and for families to enjoy and a space for family pets to get their exercise.”
