Two separate schemes to update the equipment in the popular playground in the town centre park, next to Diss Mere, have been put to a public poll.

The new facilities, aimed at older children, will replace the existing equipment which is more than 10 years old and has been discontinued by manufacturers.

The two designs submitted by contractors include equipment ranging from climbing walls to monkey bars, a spinning gyro, speed slide, rope tunnel and jungle hut.

Simon Olander, leader Diss Town Council, said: "When the schemes came in the quickest option to get residents feedback seemed to be to put it to an online poll. I know that Diss Youth Council has also been to schools and talked about the play areas and also the skatepark."

People can view the designs in greater detail at the town council office before casting their vote on facebook via @DissTC. A final decision on the chosen design will be made at the next full council meeting on July 17.

The plans are part of a boost to recreation facilities in both Diss and Roydon being paid for with funding that has come through agreements with developers.
