Message from the Chairman Regarding Forest Front Play Area

Published: 20 August 2021

Hythe and Dibden Parish Council has had to close the Play Area at Forest Front after yet more vandalism. It was possible to fence off the area affected by fire and keep the rest open but now, following more damage, this is no longer safe. This has resulted in not only the cost of replacing damaged play equipment but also the temporary fencing used to keep children safe.
The Parish Council will be working with its insurers and maintenance team to get the play area back in use as soon as possible. The Council sympathises with all those who enjoy and respect the area for this disruption.

Chairman, Cllr Philip Dowd,
Hythe and Dibden Parish Council and
New Forest District Council.
