Village Green Play Equipment

Posted: Tue, 04 Aug 2020 20:45 by Lynn Cosgrove

The Parish Council has had a number of requests for the opening up of facilities of the play area on the Village Green and like many residents, the Council share the frustrations that the Village facilities are not yet in full use. More »

As a statutory body the council is legally obliged to abide by government regulations, and follow government guidance. In addition, the Council takes into account advice from LRALC, and our Insurers. The Council is also aware that the average age of residents in Shearsby is much higher than the national average and, therefore, has a higher proportion of residents classed as vulnerable. Just as younger residents are frustrated by government restrictions due to Covid-19 we also have to be mindful of the vulnerable residents who are concerned about the relaxation of preventive measures.

The Council has reviewed the guidelines on re-opening the play area and whilst it is possible to comply with the guidance, the annual ROSPA check due in July is now outstanding because of Covid-19 restrictions and we have been advised that the inspection will be carried out in September.

On seeking clarification from our insurers we have been advised that the ROSPA checks need to be done before re-opening.

We are, therefore, unable to re-open the play equipment at the current time which we appreciate is disappointing. As soon as the equipment has been inspected and the report received the play equipment will be returned to service under whatever guidance prevails at the time. » Less
