PLAYGROUNDS are in line for a facelift to improve accessibility and enjoyment.

Brighton and Hove City Council is to carry out work on a dozen sites this month and next.

The council has promised “exciting new play equipment” across all 12.

The work, expected to take up to four weeks, is part of the council’s playground refurbishment programme which aims to create "inclusive play and learning opportunities".

Most of the 12 sites will receive a full or partial refurbishment to ensure they are accessible and fun play spaces available for all children.

Residents were consulted on the plans for the parks and viewed the designs over May half term.

Playgrounds up for improvements are: Hove Lagoon, William Clarke, Stanmer Heights, Kingswood Flats, Mackie Park, Milner Flats, Wolseley Road, Hollingbury Park, Ovingdean, Manor Road, Happy Valley and Mile Oak Recreation Ground.

The play areas will be closed while the improvements take place.
