Notice Abstract

A Play Strategy for Frome Project Specification and Invitation to Tender Frome Town Council is looking to work with partners to create a play strategy for Frome that will support the development of a playful town for children, young people and adults alike. Our vision is that Frome is a brilliant place to grow up; and an inspiring place to live and work. One that values play as an essential part of daily life for everyone in the town. And our ambition is to develop a programme of initiatives which will reduce isolation, increase physical activity, promote healthy social opportunities, and enable social, emotional, intellectual, physical and creative development opportunities for children, young people and adults. Taking the principles of inclusion and a child’s right to play as a starting point, we want to extend this to include all residents in Frome. We recognise the value of our parks and open spaces as physical spaces for play; but we also want this project to pay attention to the opportunities in other, possibly unsuspecting, spaces. Alongside the built environment, we want to explore what conditions for play can be supported by services, organisations and residents of the town. The aim of this project is to produce a participative play strategy that reflects a thorough engagement process building on the existing assets of the town with an aspirational vision for the future. It will, through participative co-design: Actively engage marginalised groups and ensure a balance of voices and views are represented Engage a wide range of partner organisations, businesses and statutory services Explore and consider existing provision and opportunities; paying particular attention to gender, disability and age equality in order to ensure issues of equality are addressed both with the participative design of a play strategy and in the recommendations it provides It will consider: The opportunities available in our parks and open spaces at the present time; in terms of fixed play and recreational equipment; and also, other less formal and less obvious opportunities How to develop our desire to grow play streets and playing out opportunities The benefits and opportunities of intergenerational play Pay attention to how ‘people make play’ – and the conditions for play in neighbourhoods; streets and communities Be aspirational – whilst managing expectation over the short, medium and long term delivery of the strategy And it will prepare a report which: Identifies the assets already held within the town and recommends how they can be built upon and further developed Offers design principles for the future; for the development of parks and open spaces and wider planning recommendations Offers practical ideas and recommendations for the development of play opportunities across the town, in schools, neighbourhoods, businesses and other settings.

A Play Strategy for Frome

Project Specification and Invitation to Tender

Frome Town Council is looking to work with partners to create a play strategy for Frome that will support the development of a playful town for children, young people and adults alike.

Our vision is that Frome is a brilliant place to grow up; and an inspiring place to live and work. One that values play as an essential part of daily life for everyone in the town.

And our ambition is to develop a programme of initiatives which will reduce isolation, increase physical activity, promote healthy social opportunities, and enable social, emotional, intellectual, physical and creative development opportunities for children, young people and adults.

Taking the principles of inclusion and a child’s right to play as a starting point, we want to extend this to include all residents in Frome.

We recognise the value of our parks and open spaces as physical spaces for play; but we also want this project to pay attention to the opportunities in other, possibly unsuspecting, spaces.

Alongside the built environment, we want to explore what conditions for play can be supported by services, organisations and residents of the town.

The aim of this project is to produce a participative play strategy that reflects a thorough engagement process building on the existing assets of the town with an aspirational vision for the future.

It will, through participative co-design:

Actively engage marginalised groups and ensure a balance of voices and views are represented

Engage a wide range of partner organisations, businesses and statutory services

Explore and consider existing provision and opportunities; paying particular attention to gender, disability and age equality in order to ensure issues of equality are addressed both with the participative design of a play strategy and in the recommendations it provides

It will consider:

The opportunities available in our parks and open spaces at the present time; in terms of fixed play and recreational equipment; and also, other less formal and less obvious opportunities

How to develop our desire to grow play streets and playing out opportunities

The benefits and opportunities of intergenerational play

Pay attention to how ‘people make play’ – and the conditions for play in neighbourhoods; streets and communities

Be aspirational – whilst managing expectation over the short, medium and long term delivery of the strategy

And it will prepare a report which:

Identifies the assets already held within the town and recommends how they can be built upon and further developed

Offers design principles for the future; for the development of parks and open spaces and wider planning recommendations

Offers practical ideas and recommendations for the development of play opportunities across the town, in schools, neighbourhoods, businesses and other settings.

Outlines short, medium, and long-term projects which will support, develop and provide opportunities for play across the town.

Recommends how to readdress any imbalances in equality of opportunity for residents of Frome
