Bury council have announced the investment of £500,000 into the children’s play areas across the Borough.

The play areas concerned in Ramsbottom include Nuttall Park, Bolton Road West, Peel Brow and Whalley Road.

This announcement follows a condition survey which revealed that many play areas were in need of repair or refurbishment due to wear and tear, and in some cases, vandalism.

Half of he money will come from the Council’s capital fund and half from the receipts from local planning schemes paid for by developers.
