PLANS have been submitted to use a public open space for a play area.

The plans, for the land between three and five Newbeck Close, Horwich, also include siting of a 1.2 metre high boundary fence with a pedestrian gate.

The land is part of the The Meadows development and the public open space is set to be transferred from the developer to Bolton Council.

The plans, submitted by the council, are for a small toddler play area with four small pieces of equipment.
