Yeld Road Play Area

Yeld Road Play Area

Following a review of operations Bakewell Town Council is to close its Yeld Road Play Area.

The decision has been taken due to the increasing maintenance and renewal costs, inappropriate usage, and previous damage to the site.

Mayor of Bakewell, Cllr Bill Storey, said "We have, for some time, been working to find an organisation willing to take over responsibility for this play area but to no avail. Sadly, due to cost implications we have had to take the difficult decision to close this facility."

Following the closure the land will revert to Lady Manners School.

The closure will take effect from 31st March 2019.
