Landscape architect - MUGA options

A. Current proposal - MUGA split into ball games and mini skate/ scooter areas:

Benefits of design:

  • Variety of play opportunities for all ages
  • Does not require high fencing around entire boundary so routes and views are kept open
  • Retains existing mature tree to the south
  • Space for generous buffer planting to boundaries


  • Not suitable for five-a-side football


B. Alternative proposal - MUGA as larger single ball games area

Benefits of design:

  • Suitable for five-a-side footbball (if fenced)


  • Less variety of play/ games opportunities
  • High cage wire fencing around boundary required - visual and physical barrier
  • Loss of mature tree
