Highfields Youth Shelter Removed - We want to hear your views

Highfields Youth Shelter Removed - We want to hear your views

In September this year, Dursley Town Council had to remove the wooden Youth Shelter located at Highfields Play Area due to safety concerns.

The main wooden support posts had started to rot and a deterioration in the structural condition of the shelter led to its removal. The shelter had been on the site for many years and was installed before Dursley Town Council took over management of the site from Stroud District Council.

Should we install a new Youth Shelter?

We are considering what we should do following the removal of the wooden Youth Shelter.

Should we reinstate the ground to grass, should we install a new youth shelter or something else?

Dursley Town Council would welcome local views from people of all age's who use the site, before a decision is made.

Please let us know what you think by 28th January 2022.

Views can be submitted to the Council office by post at:

Dursley Town Council, Jacob's House, Castle Street, Dursley, GL11 4BS
