Crawley Borough Council is modernising the play area at Southgate playing fields and is asking local residents for their views about the proposed design. 

The four-week consultation began on Friday 7 October and is running until Friday 4 November. Local residents can fill out the survey via our consultation page or pop along to the play area and give their views in person: 

Friday 21 October 3 to 5pm
Tuesday 1 November 1 to 3pm

The outreach play team is joining the first session, so residents are being encouraged to come and get involved.

This scheme is intended to bring the site back to a long-term sustainable condition, delivering a high-quality play space and forms part of a wider investment programme covering the play facilities within Crawley Borough Council’s Community Services portfolio. The allocated budget is able to meet the cost of a first phase of investment; future expansion is also being considered subject to funding being identified. 

This is an exciting opportunity to improve the current facilities for the Southgate playing fields play area. We’re really keen to hear from local residents about the proposed new design and would encourage them to fill out the online consultation or pop along to one of the in-person sessions
