Coddington mum horrified to find shards of glass at new play area at The Heights estate
A mother visiting a local park with her son was horrified to find shards of glass scattered on the ground.
Sarah-Jane Ayres, of Coddington, took her son Austen, six, to the village’s new play area on The Heights estate.
The park was finished in 2020, having been built alongside the nearby housing development by Persimmon Homes.
Sarah said her son was lucky to avoid injury after he picked up a large shard of glass to show her.
She said: “I was absolutely disgusted to see big and small shards of glass in the top soil that they had put around the whole park.
“I picked up around 20 pieces of glass and put them in the bin on the park.
“It’s not an isolated issue because in my opinion they just used the cheapest option of not using quality soil.
“If it was raked I’m in no doubt you would find plenty more.
“It needs closing as soon as possible.”
A spokesman for Persimmon Homes Nottingham said: “The play area at The Heights was completed in 2020 to the precise standards required by the planning consent and we would certainly not expect any glass to have been in the ground at that time.
“We have recently completed some minor remedial works to the area, but that did not involve the use of glass products.
“We would appreciate the resident contacting us direct so she can show one of our team exactly where it was found, to enable us to investigate.”
