Getting things done – Greater Balgay #dundeewestend

I have had numerous concerns recently about the frequency of grass cutting and maintenance in Balgay Park, Victoria Park and Lochee Park and also the need to attend to overgrown bushes at the Victoria Park boundary with Jedburgh Road.
 
I took this up with the council’s Service Manager – Environment and he has now responded as follows :
 
“I can confirm that the grass at Victoria Park has now been cut. 
 
In terms of Lochee Park, to ensure the pitches are kept in a suitable standard for football we always endeavour to cut these weekly, the remainder of the park is cut on a fortnightly basis hence the grass is a bit longer in the non football areas cut rather than being of excessive length.
 
The hedge in Jedburgh Road is cut annually and is scheduled to commence at the start of next month.”

Lochee Park playpark improvements – an update #dundeewestend

The City Council has updated me about the proposed commencement of the playpark improvement works at Lochee Park’s playpark as follows :
 
“Works are due to commence at the end of February and we will have signage in place in advance to give notice of the closure of the park. 
 
A laminated plan will also be put onto the noticeboard.”
 
The new playpark proposals look great and will be a huge improvement :

Lochee Park car park extension #dundeewestend

I am pleased to see the commencement of work last week on the car park extension at Lochee Park – see below :
This is good news as it will provide additional capacity and also, when the park is busy with teams, ensure the spillage of parked vehicles onto local streets is minimised. 
 
Additionally, there will be improvements to the playpark with new equipment in the fairly near future which is further good news for the area.
