Mawnan Junior Playing Field

Mawnan Junior Playing Field

Masterplan for an Accessible, Inclusive and Biodiverse Playground and Community Green Space

Lead Organisation: Mawnan Parish Council

Investment Priority: Community and Place

Fund: Community Capacity Fund

SPF awarded: £15,876

Location: Mawnan Smith

The Community Capacity Fund grant will be used to engage the services of landscape design experts to create a masterplan for the transformation of Mawnan Junior Playing Field. To facilitate the masterplan, they will be engaging the community to get a better understanding of their needs and preferences.

The masterplan will address the current limitations of the site, including accessibility issues, the lack of play equipment catering for diverse age groups and abilities, the absence of seating and the presence of areas of redundant play surfaces. The masterplan will serve as a strategic roadmap, guiding future funding applications in a phased development.

The aspiration is to include high-quality play equipment tailored for toddlers to teenagers, with covered seating and socialising areas for the community. Natural features will be important including native species planting and habitat creation to enhance the area’s appeal and promote biodiversity. Pathways will be planned in to the design, offering convenient access for all members of the community as well as safe routes for younger children to scoot and cycle.

Through thoughtful design and inclusive planning, they aim to create a welcoming and sustainable space that enriches the lives of all who use it.
