    We asked

    We shared draft plans for the revamp of Victoria Recreation Ground playground and asked for your views.

    You said

    The feedback on the plans was positive, with feedback including:

    • wanting more social and imaginative play equipment for young children

    • asking for cradle seat swings in the toddler area

    • asking that the proposed trampoline is made bigger

    • not being in favour of the maze in the playground

    We did

    Based on your feedback, we changed the plans for Victoria Recreation Ground playground. The changes are:

    Play equipment for young children
    A number of people asked for more imaginative play equipment for young children. We have changed the plans to include a toddler train, playhouse and cradle seat swings in the toddler area.

    Trampoline
    Based on feedback, we have changed the plans to include a larger 2m x 2m trampoline.

    More natural-looking designA number of people asked for more natural looking surfacing, so this has been toned down to a more natural colour which is more in keeping with the local area.

    What was removed?
    Of those who responded to the survey, a number of people were not supportive of the maze and the timber edging around the sandpit, so these have both been removed from the design.

    Next steps

    The works on site are due to start in mid September and complete in early October, taking around 4 weeks.

    The Kingston Conversations aim to involve residents more directly in our decision making process, with informal discussions on the topics that matter most.

    The January events saw conversations around housing, the London Plan and regeneration, recycling, air quality and our budget. Council tax, highways maintenance and Cock's Crescent were also popular topics.

    We asked

    We asked all attendees to fill in a questionnaire before the event and after. Both surveys asked whether you felt the council listened to residents and whether it acts on your concerns.

    You said

    In both cases, attendees felt differently and more positive about the council following the event. The graph below shows the increase.

    We asked

    We asked all attendees to fill in a questionnaire before the event and after. Both surveys asked whether you felt the council listened to residents and whether it acts on your concerns.

    You said

    Attendees at the Surbiton conversation felt differently and more positive about the council following the event.

    Attendees at the Tolworth conversation felt more positive that the council listens to them following the events, however their opinion stayed the same around whether the council acts on what residents say.

    The graph below shows the difference.
