The proposed upgrade of Birkdale Reserve included a new playground, irrigated turf, fencing, footpath, shelter and seating.A total of 63 responses to the consultation were received, with 47 responses (75% of total responses) indicating support for the proposal. The consultation results, together with a draft concept plan were presented to the Asset Management Committee on 17 June 2019 (Item 3.52), where draft concept plans were endorsed for further community consultation. The existing playground at St Andrews Way Reserve will be retained.
