Game on in Whorterbank02/10/15
WORK TO create a £185,000 multi use games area (MUGA) and other environmental improvements is set to get underway in a Dundee community next week.
The MUGA as well as an upgraded play park, extra car parking spaces, seating areas and landscaping improvements will be developed in Whorterbank.
Will Dawson, convener of Dundee City Council’s city development committee said: “This work is being done to help us achieve a key target set out in the Lochee Physical Regeneration Framework.
“I am particularly pleased that local residents had input and a say on the design and layout of the proposed development at a consultation event we held in July 2014.
“Other agencies, including Police Scotland, have also helped in the creation and the location of the improvements, which I am sure will be welcomed and well used by the community when they are finished.”
Money for the majority of the work is coming from the Vacant and Derelict Land Fund with the MUGA itself paid for through Dundee Partnership’s Community Regeneration Fund.
Contractors Tayside Contracts are due to start work on site next week with the project completed by the end of the year.
