Chelford Activity Park Improvements
Here is a chance to have your say on what you would like to see happening at the the Chelford Activity park
1. Active Cheshire are encouraging the installation of lighting at outdoors sports facilities in order to extend the usable hours throughout the darker months. Large improvements in games area lighting now means that it is more environmentally friendly; modern lights use LED technology and have an easily administered card-key system that allows users to put the lights on only when needed. The new technology means that running and maintenance costs are a fraction of what they were previously.
It is proposed that lighting is installed for the Chelford MUGA using low-running cost LED lights on masts just above the height of the MUGA sides which minimises light pollution. The hours of operation would be restricted to 9.00pm and the lights would only be used on demand by authorised users of a card-key system.
Of course, any lighting installation would be subject to obtaining planning permission from CEC.
2. Another proposal is to install some activity equipment suitable for the use of older children and adults. This was a need expressed in the Parish Plan consultations.
Cheshire East Council have suggested that a Kompan Supernova would be suitable which is great fun but also uses lots of energy. Click here to see a Supernova in action but turn the sound off!
