Plans to up­grade park area in Plains

Airdrie & Coatbridge Advertiser - - News - Ju­dith Ton­ner

Plains res­i­dents are be­ing asked for their views on a pro­posed new open-space de­vel­op­ment at Stan­rigg Park.

New fea­tures in­clud­ing climb­ing boul­ders and dry-stone struc­tures have been sug­gested, along with new wood­land and path im­prove­ments.

A con­sul­ta­tion ses­sion will take place in the vil­lage’s com­mu­nity cen­tre on Tues­day, from 3pm to 8pm; while a ques­tion­naire seek­ing opin­ions on the project is avail­able at lo­cal shops and via the Face­book page of Plains Com­mu­nity Fu­tures.

They are work­ing along­side the coun­cil and Cen­tral Scot­land Green Net­work (CSGNT) Trust, and Fu­tures chair Ge­orge McCutcheon said: “This would im­prove the re­dun­dant wa­ter­logged foot­ball park.

“We’re look­ing to change and en­hance the land­scape of Plains; this is a one- off op­por­tu­nity to make our vil­lage more fam­ily-ori­ented, and I’d urge res­i­dents to com­plete the sur­vey.”

Mike Bat­ley of CSGNT said: “This ini­tia­tive would de­velop a real as­set for the com­mu­nity.”
