Part of the plan includes the removal of smaller, less well used sites to reduce the overall maintenance costs. Match funding will also be sought in a bid to increase the amount of money for the proposals.

Convener of the committee, Cllr Ken Caldwell said: “These areas provide not just safe play spaces for our children but also important meeting places in the community. Investing in these areas should increase footfall and community accessibility, and raise usage levels.”
