Competition to transform playing field into community space and play areas

Turn this playing field into a vibrant community space

Plymouth City Council is inviting expressions of interest for the creation of play space and community space at the heart of its Red Brick Estate in Barne Barton.

The residential estate was built in the 1990s, replacing a 1950s secondary school. The competition seeks to transform the 0.5ha former playing field, providing a stronger identity for the estate along with an imaginative play area for local families.

The brief requests an ‘original and distinctive proposal for improvements that activate the space, enhance the function and identity of the field and encourage greater use by the community’. Proposals should include a gateway feature, play features, seating, waymarking and gateing improvements. The project is scheduled for completion in June next year.

For a copy of the briefing document, contact Debbie Burton, neighbourhood manager, Plymouth City Council, 01752 306 521, The deadline for submissions in 9 November.
