Maria Larkin attended the recent Leisure and Community Safety Policy and Scrutiny Committee meeting held at Three Rivers Council on Wednesday 21 November. A decision made at the meeting are effectively recommendations to Full Council where the final decision is made. The next Full Council is on Monday 3rd December.

The committee discussed the results as published will recommend to the Full Council Meeting on 3rd December that the play space be located on the Common with options to look at 
  • Area A (set back from the Cricket Pitch in a clearing) and 
  • Area B (located adjacent to Station Approach between Shepherd's Bridge car park and the Golf Club).
However both locations A and B were deemed unsuitable by the Parish Council not long after the play advisiory committee completed their report.  It seems the rangers believe area, A to be too boggy for such a scheme and area B due to the concerns from the PCSO's of the increase in anti-social behaviour as there is ad hoc incidents in this location currently.
Simone Tyson spoke for chorleywoodmums in support of the play space being located on the Common.
Michael Hyde of Friends of Chorleywood Common spoke against the locations A and B, however Cllrs Martin Trevett and Sue Stibbs suggested a further option Area C (located towards Dog Kennel Lane and behind the Vicarage). This can be found on the Play Advisory Committee Report Map.
The Leisure committee accepted their recommendations to investigate further areas A, B and C as possible locations. Chorleywood Parish Council were also in agreement for this recommendation to be put to the Full Council meeting for review.

Any residents who are interested in the Play Area should attend the Three Rivers Chorleywood Local Area forum at 2pm on Monday 3rd December at the Memorial Hall on Common Road.
