New play equipment for Hollands Way

Hollands Way play areaWe'll be installing some new playground equipment at Hollands Way in East Grinstead this spring.

The plans, which have been developed in consultation with local residents, include a new climbing frame and slide for toddlers, and a much taller one for older children.

Four play panels will be arranged to create a sense of enclosure, so young children can pretend it is a shop, a house, a cave or whatever their imagination creates. There will also be new swings and playground game markings along the path.

You can view the full plans on our website.

Government funding of up to £1.8million has been awarded to the West Sussex Chargepoint Network, which is providing electric vehicle (EV) chargepoints for residents in areas which have no off-street parking.

The award will part-fund up to 450 on-street chargepoints and 100 in public car parks. The remaining installation costs will be covered by EV chargepoint company Connected Kerb, one of the UK’s leading providers of EV charging infrastructure solutions.

The new wave of installations will provide a significant boost to the growing West Sussex Chargepoint Network, which is supported by West Sussex County Council and all the districts and borough councils in the county.

This extra funding award by the Department for Transport is excellent news and will further boost what is already the UK’s largest rollout of electric vehicle chargepoints by a local authority. 

Proposed locations from the initial phase of the on-street chargepoint rollout can be viewed on the Connected Kerb website.

The project is fully funded by Connected Kerb, meaning zero cost to the councils.
