ALMOST ยฃ360,000 of environmental improvements across Dundee are set to be discussed by councillors next week.

A total of 11 projects in green and open spaces around the city will redesign, landscape and provide play equipment at a total cost of ยฃ359,000.

Anne Rendall depute convener of Dundee City Councilโ€™s neighbourhood services committee said: โ€œThe proposed projects have been designed to improve and enhance the local environment for residents and members of the public.

โ€œI am pleased that we are considering these projects, many of which have been driven by the communities themselves, which as well as encouraging more people to get out and enjoy our open spaces also mean they can be used safely.โ€

Among the projects looking for the green light will be the redesign and enhancement to the City Churches through creation of gravel panels that will ease maintenance and create additional planting; improvements to Clatto Park including installation of bollards, and a drainage system; installation of outdoor exercise equipment at Hilltown to enhance the current provision; new play equipment at Ardler and St Kilda parks and installation of green gym equipment at Fintry play area.

The neighbourhood services committee meets on Monday (September 24).
