A former recreational site on Littlehampton seafront is being transformed into a picnic area to be named ‘Picnic on the Green’, adjacent to the beach
The Western Putting, Crazy Golf and Crazy Snooker Green next to Banjo Road were decommissioned in 2016 after a Council contractor took the commercial decision to invest in improving the nearby Buccaneer Bay Adventure Golf Course.
Arun District Council is now giving the green space a new lease of life as a family picnic area, which will be gated to keep youngsters safe and furnished with picnic benches and litter bins.
The work is set to be completed by the end of May 2018, ready for the summer season.
Councillor Mrs Gillian Brown, Leader of Arun District Council and Cabinet Member for Economy, said: “We are very pleased to be able to breathe new life into this derelict attraction. Lying so close to the coach park, beach and BBQ stands, this really is the perfect spot to stop for a picnic.
“The area will be enclosed so families will be safe in the knowledge that youngsters can’t wander too far and it will feature attractive planting, making it the ideal place to relax and enjoy lunch.”
Once established, it is envisaged that there will be children’s entertainment and other events held at the site.
