Playground will return

PLAYground equipment removed from the site of Arc Leisure Matlock before it was built is to be re-installed on site, at a cost of £20,000.

The news comes as Derbyshire Dales District Council announced that the building of the Arc came in under budget of a target of £11,772,000.

Deputy leader of Derbyshire Dales District Council, Cllr Geoff Stevens, said: “It was always a priority to replace the equipment on the playground above Arc if finances allowed and I’m absolutely delighted that this is now possible.

“For a project of this magnitude to come in on time and on budget is a remarkable achievement.”
