Improvements and upgrades to play areas in Ely will be carried out when council funds become available.

The work will be implemented as Section 106 funds become available, according to a report by City of Ely Council’s recreation and cemetery committee.

It follows the repairing and upgrading of fencing at the park play area.

The committee report continues to say that the cemetery, along with its roads and pathways, have been maintained to a high standard.

It adds that fencing has replaced a dilapidated section along the boundary with New Barns Road and that discussions have taken place regarding the provision of extra storage equipment in the cemetery.
