Ferry Ward Councillor Kevin Cordell has welcomed proposals that will see almost £350 000 invested by Dundee City Council’s SNP administration in parks and green spaces in the ward.

A total of £750,000 has been allocated for the enhancement of parks & open space, of which £140,000 of works are scheduled for the Ferry at Claypotts, Reres, Dawson and the Grassy Beach.

Mr Cordell said: “The SNP’s local government manifesto promised that we would deliver real investment in our play parks and green spaces and I am delighted to see the first fruits of that promise agreed.

People have really begun to see the importance of green spaces, particularly through the pandemic, and these enhancements will encourage more people to visit our green spaces and parks.”

A further £750,000 for additional improvements to play parks and the installation of further accessible play equipment will see £200,000 spent at Castle Green, in a refresh of the existing play equipment and kiddie rides to complete and support wider enhancements in this area which follows from Active Travel and Flood Improvements nearby.

Mr Cordell concluded: “Castle Green is a jewel in the crown of the Ferry’s parks sitting right at the heart of the community and this investment will improve the facilities and be welcomed by the community.

An emphasis will be placed on improved accessibility for all children to enjoy this prime location and I am delighted the local community will be consulted as the plans progress.”

The proposals were agreed at Dundee City Council’s Policy and Resources committee on Monday (July 27).
