The play areas group oversees all the play areas in Street. All but Merriman Park belong to Mendip District Council, so the purpose of our group is to try and get the best for the children, young people and parents of Street.
To fulfil this we
– regularly inspect each park and give written reports to Mendip District Council.
– meet with a representative from Idverde (the Maintenace Company Employed by Mendip DC) to ensure grounds maintenance and safety concerns are addressed
– consult with the public when money becomes available for improvements
– actively engage with Mendip DC to manage development projects so that they give the best possible outcomes

The group meets at least monthly, and we always welcome constructive ideas and comments from all members of the community
