The old play park at Bryn de Winton in Brecon’s St John Ward is set for a makeover after a project put forward by local Councillor Matthew Dorrance secured vital backing from residents and the Council.
After residents in Bryn de Winton and Coryton Close contacted Matthew Dorrance about fly tipping and a lack of facilities at the park the local Labour Councillor secured funding from Brecon Town Council for a project to help improve the site.
Matthew undertook a community survey and a consultation meeting at the park so residents in Bryn de Winton and Coryton Close could have their say on the future of the site.
Town Councillors Michaela Davies, Marie Matthews and Rob Thomas are also supporting the project which will see new seating and new footpaths, a creative play wooden climbing frame and a sensory willow arch and plants added to the park.
The proposals have now been approved by Powys County Council’s Housing Service and plans to start work on site are being made.
Cllr Matthew Dorrance said:
“I am delighted that this community park is going to benefit from investment from Brecon Town Council. The Town Council is committed to investing in our parks and the proposals for this project have been developed in partnership with residents in Bryn de Winton and Coryton Close.
“The project is very exciting and it will create a community garden for everyone to enjoy.
“I know residents in Coryton Close and Bryn de Winton love where they live and their views and ideas have been invaluable in helping to get this project approved.”
