They also said: "Our neighbours daughter found glass in the sandpit, which we cannot understand why this was ever used because the sand is attracting animals to do their business in."

The developer behind Mandeville Park, Bloors Homes confirmed that the damaged kerb has been replaced and new installed tarmac to the unsightly section of footpath identified and have apologised for the delay in finishing the park which has now been completed.

The spokesman said: “All of the estate roads and footpaths have been completed and our Adoptions Manager continues to liaise with Buckinghamshire Highways to progress the development towards adoption.

"We are aware that further works are required to a small number of manhole covers, however all have been left level with the wearing course tarmac without any change in level so remain safe for all road users."

“The installation and completion of the playground has been delayed by a number of issues, including supply issues, however we accept that this element of works has taken longer than it should and for this we apologise.

"The playground is now complete and open having been installed in accordance with the approved planning permission and sign off from ROSPA.

"This includes the installation of the sandpit which was awarded one of the highest scores by ROSPA in respect of Play Value within their assessment sheet.

"Our Adoptions Manager is also in direct contact with the Parks Officer for Buckinghamshire Council particularly in respect of the grass and matting which is now settling in. 

"Bloor Homes will now inspect and rake the sandpit on a fortnightly basis whilst the park is still relatively new to the wider development."
