£170k upgrades to open spaces across Dundee planned

Kevin Cordell

More than £170,000 of improvements to open spaces across Dundee could get under way in the next few weeks.

Councillors will be asked to approve a package that includes redesign and landscape improvements and replacement of security fencing at Fintry Park, Alva Square, Hillside Quarry, and Kinghorne Road allotments.

The works include better sight-lines, installation of bollards and naturalised areas at Fintry Park; enhancement to planted sections at Alva Square; and replacement security fencing at the Kinghorne Road allotments.

Neighbourhood services convener Kevin Cordell said: “Over the past year we have committed more than £1 million of environmental improvement works in Dundee.

“These are important to making the city look and feel more attractive, while also making the city safer using measures like replacing fencing and access controls facilities.”

The package will be discussed by councillors on Monday January 8.
