Council extend playpark consultation

ANGUS Council has announced the extension to the consultation period on playparks around the county which have been proposed for the possible removal of play equipment.

The consultation follows a report which identified that a number of playparks had issues with obsolete, difficult to repair equipment or did not meet current health and safety standards.

While it is proposed play equipment may have to be removed from specific areas, the surrounding park areas will remain accessible to the public.

To allow as many people as possible to take part in the online consultation at www.angus.gov.uk/playparks, or by collecting a paper survey from council ACCESS offices or libraries, the deadline has been extended to December 14.

The council’s convener of neighbourhood services, Councillor Donald Morrison said: “We’ve recognised that this is a very busy time of year for people, and have now extended the deadline to ensure that all those who wish to make a comment have ample time to do so.”
