Members of the public are being asked to avoid three Dundee green spaces as important storm clearing works take place.

Storm Arwen hit the area with force on Friday 26th November 2021 with Dundee’s trees being significantly affected from powerful gusts at the time.

Dundee City Council Environment staff have responded to the damage near schools, housing areas and in a number of parks and open areas. Employees have placed signage and safety guidance at key Dundee green spaces still affected.

However, specialist harvesting work is required to take place and will begin at Templeton Woods on Monday 31st January, before work follows at Balgay and Reres Hill.

Neighbourhood Services Convener Councillor Anne Rendall said: “It’s very important that these final operations take place. They are very dangerous and therefore it is vital that only the workers with the specialist training enter these taped off areas at our green spaces during this period.

“I urge residents to not use Templeton Woods at this time and follow the instructions on the warning signs. Work has progressed recently and staff have cleared the paths at Camperdown Park as well as the Green Circular away from Templeton Woods.

“We ask that members of the public enjoy the green spaces where work has been finished around the city and wait until these vital works are carried out before visiting Templeton Woods, Balgay and Reres Hill again.”

Further updates regarding the status of the storm clean-up will be shared via our website and social media channels.

In the meantime, members of the public are advised to avoid using these areas at this time.
