Have your Say on Inclusive Play - The Canch

Plans to install brand new play equipment suitable for all abilities at the award-winning Canch Park in Worksop are set to take a step forward this month. Bassetlaw District Council are seeking views on the provision of equipment designed with the less able bodied person in mind.

Bassetlaw District Council are proposing to install the following equipment in the Canch:

  • AbilitySwing with Enclosure - Wheelchair Swing
  • Ability SpaceWhirl - 1.9m Inclusive Roundabout
  • Tubular Ally Glockenspiel Inclusive Free Standing Music Panel

To have your say visit on the proposals visit the 'Have your say on inclusive play page of our website.

Paper versions are also available from the Council Offices at Queen’s Buildings in Worksop. The survey closes on Friday 4 February 2022.

The proposed new play equipment follows on from the new refreshments kiosk outdoor seating and toilets that are scheduled to open in the New Year. These will include a second public Changing Places facility in Worksop, a disabled toilet, a baby change and parent WC in addition to four unisex toilets.

To ensure that the proposed new equipment will promote inclusive play, it will be sited amongst the existing play equipment.

Cllr Julie Leigh, Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods at Bassetlaw District Council said: "We are asking residents for their views on the proposed new specialist play equipment for the Canch. Providing equipment suitable for all abilities will make the park more inclusive and accessible. With both a changing places and disabled toilet down at the Canch, we hope this will give people greater confidence to use the park."
