Park is too small for all the chil­dren

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

RE­GARD­ING the coun­cil spokes­woman’s re­sponse to my let­ter in the Tele on April 24 about play space in Lochee.

She makes my point by high­light­ing the play ar­eas be­tween the mul­tis, Adam­son Court and El­ders Court. The chil­dren will have to cross the busy by­pass to get to the very small park — and no doubt join the queue to play on the swings.

Af­ter all, this park is used by the kids who live in the mul­tis and on Atholl Street, who at least live on the right side of the road.

Can the coun­cil in­form read­ers as to what an in in­for­mal seat­ing area is?

Could it be more spe­cific as to where this multi-use games area is?

And fi­nally, I note the coun­cil didn’t com­ment on hous­ing pol­icy and play ar­eas.

Is it ac­cept­able to have fam­i­lies liv­ing on busy ringroads? I can’t imag­ine many of the kids will be out play­ing on their bikes nearby.

James Hutchi­son.
