Yesterday I met with the ‘Improve Ashmore Park Play Area For Our Kids Public Group!’ with Mary at the Hub on Ashmore Park.
I informed them that the consultation on the Ashmore Park would start on the 27th July and run to the 14th August.
The city council are consulting with residents and users of the Park. The City’s Public Realm team would like to carry out improvements and are very keen to hear the views local people, including young parents.
There are a number of options on the page already including
• To Install fencing around the children’s play area
• Improvements to the children’s play area
• Improvements to the BMX track
• Pathway and access improvements to the Park.
• Other proposals – Please State
The City Council is also canvassing other ideas that you may have and they are asking people during this consultation to place their thoughts down as well.
A display will be in the ‘Hub’ and on the first day next Monday- A City Council official from the Public Realm team, will also be present.
The Hub has agreed to collect any residents comments for the City Public Realm team….There will be a box for collecting the questionnaire available at the Hub until the 14th August.
I will be sharing any information I receive from residents appertaining to the Improvement request by social media with the Parks and Public Realm department. I know that the group I have been working with has a number one priority and that is the erection of a safety fence around the little children’s play facilities.
