North Penarth Open Space Improvement Scheme
The Council is proposing to enhance and upgrade four areas of open space in north Penarth
The Council has received a substantial amount of section 106 funding following negotiations with the developers at the Penarth Heights housing scheme and is proposing to use it to upgrade and enhance open spaces in the area. The open spaces being considered are:
The Dingle Open Space, Windsor Road;
Plassey Square Open Space;
Paget Road Open Space; and
Cogan Recreation Ground
The consultation report gives a breakdown of responses to the consultation.
Paget Road Play Area
The Council is pleased to announce that the plans for Paget Road Play Area and Multi-Use Games Area are in the final draft stages. The proposals are currently out to tender, and the planning application for the lighting has been submitted for consideration. The Council hope to appoint the contractor by mid-February.

Tree and wildflower planting final phase of Plassey Square upgrade
Work to plant additional trees and wildflowers around Plassey Square will commence in the coming weeks. Taking on board feedback from the consultation, the tree planting will form an avenue along Harbour View Road. The aim will be to define the space whilst not obscuring the views onto the park from adjacent houses around the Square.
Work to refurbish Penarth parks continues apace, with new-look play areas at Plassey Square and Cwrt Y Vil set to open in time for the Easter Holidays.
In total £600,000 has been set aside for improvements to North Penarth parks in a scheme that will also include upgrades to Paget Road play area, Cogan Recreation Ground skate park and Dingle Park. Additional work to renew the Cliff Walk play area is already underway. Read the article in full.
