But the play area is still fenced off and the direct path to Kingsway Retail Park is still blocked off. This means children have no local play facilities and people choose to drive, not walk, to shops.

Local councillors have asked both the council and the developers, Kier, to allow these to be used. Councillor Eric Ashburner said "The fight will continue until they are both available."
