Councillor Penny Gilbey is stepping up a campaign for what she calls the ‘forgotten park’.

The Labour councillor for North Portslade wants to see improvements to Mile Oak Park.

She is holding a public meeting tonight for people to bring concerns and ideas for changes.

Councillor Gilbey said: “Ever since the so-called ‘refurbishment’ of the park where three new pieces of play equipment were almost instantly classed as unsafe, unstable or not functional, I, along with local community groups, have been lobbying the Council to do something to improve Mile Oak Park for the countless families and young people that rely on it locally.

“Friday’s meeting will be a chance for local residents to have their say on what they feel the Council needs to do to improve what has become known as the ‘Forgotten Park’.”

The meeting will be held at Mile Oak Community Centre in Chalky Road tonight (Friday 22 November) at 7.30pm.
