RESIDENTS objecting to a proposed play area at a primary school have been told there is nothing to worry about.

Bishops Lydeard primary school wants to build the facility, with timber climbing equipment and an artificial grass surface, on a piece of waste ground at the back of the school.

But two neighbours have written letters to Somerset County Council claiming the structure would lead to loss of privacy, create extra noise, ruin their view and produce security issues.

But the county's case officer, Liam Evans, in a report to the council's regulation committee, which will debate the application next Tuesday, said the development would not create any of these problems.
