(TELEGRAPH) — A children’s playground in the Cotswolds has been fenced off while local residents argue whether it is too brightly coloured.

The play area was a major attraction to families when they moved to the area, with some paying up to £500,000 for properties on the estate Corinium Via estate.

But when the play area was completed last summer a handful of locals complained that the size and colour scheme of the playground were not “in keeping” with the area.

Developer Redrow Homes erected a metal fence around the site and vowed to re-paint the swings and climbing frames, which are primarily red, green and blue.
