To add to the quality of Town Council parks and open spaces, seating is provided to allow visitors to enjoy the environment and the outdoor space. The Town Council believes that seating is an essential element of the out-door offer and something that all well-maintained and managed parks should accommodate. Seating encourages parents to bring children to parks and watch them play in comfort, seating also offers the less able and older people a welcome rest.
The Town Council offers opportunities which enable members of the community to sponsor benches (at approved locations) in memory of a loved one. It is envisaged that donated memorial benches will be placed in the town’s parks and open spaces and other agreed (in advance) locations.
Applications for benches in locations other than on the council’s approved list will be considered and if they meet the requirements of Highways and Town Council terms, approval may be granted.
