Councillor warns of possible problems at Beer play area
Designs for a revamped play area in Beer have been ratified by the parish council – and they are glad to see the equipment will fit.
The chosen plans for Ashill had a 75 per cent approval rating from two different groups, but Councillor Martin Cox had suggested his colleagues exercise caution after problems at the Jubilee gardens.
Contractors found that the designs for a seafront gym did not fit the space when they came to install it in January.
Cllr Cox said: “I thought we may have had a similar issue to to the Jubilee - but there isn’t a problem.”
The scouts and children at the primary school opted for a design which features a climbing frame, amphitheatre, swings and stepping logs.

The new equipment will stand alongside some of the existing items, including the slide and basketball hoops, which will be refurbished.
The Ashill play area is benefiting from a £17,500 investment – a £10,000 grant from the Big Lottery Fund and a £7,500 levy awarded by developers who have built in the village.
