I mentioned last month that Councillors had taken the decision to retain this play park and would be looking at the options for refurbishing it. We’ve started to contact contractors to invite them to come up with some design ideas for a new play park. From our past experience with the play park at Fore Street Park this will take some time. We will also need to look at the costs involved and consider how we are going to raise the capital. Before we finalise any design we will hold some sort of consultation event to allow interested parties to view the options and give their comments.
In the meantime, because we know this is all going to take some time, we will be engaging a contractor to undertake repairs to the “multi-play”. This should be completed early in January.
