Playground request deemed too political
A REQUEST for action at a children's playground has been put on hold because it was deemed too political.
Coedffranc Community Council had a letter from regional AM Peter Black asking it to consider upgrading the equipment at the park in Jersey Marine.
However, it was pointed out that an election candidate for the area had made claims about the park in an election leaflet.
Members had previously agreed not to discuss any political issues during meetings held in the run-up to the election.
Instead they decided the council's finance committee should consider Mr Black's letter.
The committee will not meet until after next Thursday's elections.
