1.  How many children's play areas were managed by the local authority in each year since 2009-10?

I have provided the information in the table below for each year since 2005/06

2. How many children's play areas have been built and refurbished by the local authority in each year since 2005-06?

The information is broken down for each year since 2005/06 in to new play areas (created or adopted by EHC) and refurbished existing play areas (refurbished = 3 or more items of equipment added to an existing play area or a complete refurbishment / move on existing location).
