New playpark facilities are high on the wishlist for a group of Dundee residents looking to improve their area.
An action group recently established in Dryburgh wants to see the site of the former Dryburgh Primary School used as green space for kids.
Residents say Dryburgh is one of the few areas in Dundee not served by kids’ play facilities and believe it will be a good starting point for rejuvenating the area.
The idea is being spearheaded by local councillor Charlie Malone, who is also assisting the group with a campaign for more police action on speeding and anti-social driving.
Complaints about driving and what can be done to improve the area were heard at a recent meeting in Dryburgh Community Centre, where the action group gave their full backing for a new playpark.
Gael Lindsay, 42, who lives in Dryburgh Street, said at the meeting: “We definitely need more green space there for the kids.
“We could be doing with a playpark or something on the land at the school because Dryburgh is one of the only places that doesn’t have one.
“We used to have one years ago but they took it away.
“Every one of us agrees that it’s definitely something they should be looking at bringing in.”
