    Developing and managing play spaces - community toolkit

    The Developing and Managing Play Spaces community toolkit has been designed for anyone who takes responsibility for managing or developing a play space in a community. This may be a community council, local play association or a residents group.

    The toolkit is intended to provide a single source of support and signposting for community groups to navigate some of the challenges of managing or developing a play space.

    This toolkit provides clear and concise information, as well as step-by-step guides and templates, on the two main themes:

    • Design – focuses on new play space design and includes topics such as participation, procurement, design and risk management (often referred to as ‘health and safety’)
    • Management – focuses on the mechanics of managing an existing or newly built play space and includes topics such as maintenance and inspection, risk management and insurance.

    We worked with Ludicology to review and update this fourth edition of the toolkit.
