A PRESTATYN resident has raised concerns over health and safety at Bodnant Infants school.

Antony Wright, of Ffrith Gardens, has said he has contacted the council and the school regarding the loose gravel on the Bodnant playground, which potentially puts children using the area at risk.

He said: “The floor surface in the playground is breaking up. There is a lot of loose gravel on the floor and my children have come home with lasserations on their hands and face.

“I have been in touch with the council and the school numerous times and my wife bought it up seven years ago when she was on the PTA, and the have yet to do anything about it.

“You send your children to school to be in a protective environment.”

Plans to redevelop parts of the school are set to be approved by Denbighshire County Council’s Planning Committee today, but these proposals only include work to the Junior section of the school.

Mr Wright added: “I have spoken to a number of parents who feel exactly the same as me, and the Council have ignored every one of the letters I have sent and I have yet to hear one word from them.

“I am in the process of taking legal action but until I get the required information then I unfortunately cannot take it any further at this time.”

A Denbighshire County Council spokesperson said: “To our knowledge school will be dealing with the matter locally, but officers from the Council would be contacting the school to gather more information on the matter and try to alleviate any concerns parents may have on the specified area.”
