As reported in the last Kyle Chronicle, following the Highland Council’s safety inspection of Carnmhor Crescent play area in Bonar Bridge, KoSDT was made aware that some of the playpark’s existing equipment had been fenced off, and that the remaining equipment had a limited working life before it would need to be replaced.
KoSDT was concerned that this might result in the playpark being closed to the public in the near future. Therefore, on behalf of the community, KoSDT is exploring the options to try and ensure that a viable working playpark can remain in the village for the children to play in. As part of this process KoSDT has been holding an informal consultation to gather feedback from the community to find out if people would prefer for the playpark to remain at its current site, or at a new proposed location close to the football pitch… or if they can think of another alternative location.
This is an informal community survey and residents are invited to contact the Trust with their thoughts by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01863 766190. Quotes for refurbishing a play park have been sought, but no deadline has been set because KoSDT has not secured funding yet.
Please note: The Highland Council are currently responsible for the Carnmhor Crescent site – not KoSDT. If at a later stage funding is secured, the community will be fully consulted, and no decisions will be made without the consent of the community.
