RESIDENTS in Nuneaton are being given their say on a proposed refurbishment to Buttermere Park in the St. Nicholas’ area of Nuneaton.

The consultation comes as the facilities inside of the park are now over 30 years old and are “in need of refreshment”, according to a Borough Council spokesperson.

At present, the Borough Council are considering giving the park a complete overhaul which would see brand new play equipment built, alongside ‘much-needed’ enhanced accessibility options.

The plans further include facilities which are suitable for a wide range of ages – these would include a new picnic area, informal kickabout space, wheeled sports area, and landscaping with wild trees and flowers.

The refurbishment would be funded with cash allocated from Section 106 – funding which is paid for by developers to be used on community infrastructure projects.

Residents who want to have a say on the plans have a total of 11 days to do so, by participating on an online service, which remains open until Thursday, 30 June.

Coun. Julian Gutteridge, the Council’s Portfolio Holder for Health and Environment, said: “The recreation ground is now very dated, and this refurbishment is most definitely required.

“We would love to hear views on our proposals from people living near the park so please get in touch and let us know your thoughts.”
