Consultation has concluded

In late 2018, Litchfield Council commissioned an independent audit of the playgrounds at Humpty Doo Village Green.

The playground audit identified that three free standing slides urgently require soft fall to meet Australian Standards for playgrounds and ensure children safety.

Council has since removed two of the smaller slides and planted grass in its place.

In investigating the existing larger dome slide Council considered the cost of installing soft fall, the adjacent tree that will be affected and the remaining life span of the structure.

As a result the dome slide structure has been removed.

Council are looking at options to update the playground at the Village Green through grant funding schemes throughout the 2019/20 financial year and will continue to engage with the community on this project.

We thank you for your patience as we ensure our playground is safe for all users.
