King Street Play Park Upgrade

  • Dawn Connor spoke about Kings Street play park budget of £8000 for Repairs and Maintenance. Ideas
    for fencing for separate gardens, removing banks of landscaping for parking. Car park refused as
    tenants wouldn't like it upgraded.
  • Alan McMullen showed tenants where King Street looked like before in 2008. Ideas about Street improvements - tenants would like space for emergency services as ambulances cannot get up the street.
  • Further discussion that home owners would have to pay half for fencing as street is mixed ownership and council.
  • John White spoke about a separate meeting to discuss privately about the upgrade of Kings Street. Alana McMullen has arranged a plan to involve neighbours in both ends of the street to come together to discuss Ideas fairly.
