Milnbank Play Area – Improve all surfacing within the play area. This includes removing slabbed surface and replacing with rubber mulch safety surface and additional ground restoration works.
Magdalen Green Play Area – Improve stability of the well-used banking by installation of a Scramble net to enhance play for users and additional restoration to safety surfacing.
The Assistant Operations Manager for Neighbourhood Services in the west of the city further updated me regarding this playpark that :
” .. there were improvements in 2015 to the park, mainly the south fence and there was a new Timber Climb / slide installed. The remainder of the units are probably 10 years old.
(It is a) bit run down due to the amount of hard surfacing – mainly slabs, tar paths, etc. I am currently looking to see if this can be softened up by grassing some of this. Also, the benches and bins could do with re-positioning which I will have carried out.”
THE DUNDEE CITY COUNCIL AS TRAFFIC AUTHORITY being satisfied that traffic on the road should be prohibited by reason of Scottish Water repair works being carried out HEREBY PROHIBIT the driving of any vehicle in Milnbank Road (from its junction with Polepark Road to Lawrence Street), Dundee.

This morning, along with members of the Community Spirit Action Group, volunteers from Jericho House and Hillcrest Housing Association and City Council Communities Officer, Waste Management and two of my ward colleagues, I participated in another West End graffiti clean up.
At the last clean up, we concentrated on streets in the southern part of the West End, so today, we put our efforts into cleaning up graffiti in the northern part of the ward in Community’s Spirit’s coverage area, tackling graffiti in streets like Milnbank Road, Lower Pleasance and Rosefield Place. Here’s me in Lower Pleasance earlier this morning!
The area of ground is in the ownership of the City Council’s Economic Development Department and I am pleased to advise that the department has confirmed to me that it has, following my raising the issue with them, instructed repairs.
It was my local party AGM last night and having got the real business out of the way promptly, we had an enjoyable social evening thereafter. A number of people commented how good the West End Christmas Lights Switch-On was and how nice the tree looks this year.
Can you update me on position re this?
Also, the phone box in Milnbank Road Dundee I reported to you weeks ago is STILL missing its door – can you advise ASAP.

Your e-mail appears to have been sent without checking the nature of my complaint. These were in my capacity as a City Councillor and pertain to vandalism/condition of several local phone boxes. They have nothing whatsoever to do with my personal phone account.
I am particularly concerned that months after raising complaints about a door missing off the phone box in Milnbank Road, Dundee, it remains unrepaired.
I’d be most grateful if you would advise of the position ASAP – many thanks.
