Council Responds To Coleraine Councillors In Relation To The Condition Of Anderson’s Park and Harpers Hill Play Park

1 Mins read

An email on the 4th January 2019 from Head of Service of Sport & Wellbeing on behalf of Causeway Coast & Glens Borough Council let Coleraine councillors know that council is dealing with a number of issues relating to Harpurs Hill Play Park and Anderson’s Park.

The email follows the day after our video interview with MLA Maurice Bradley.

The email states that Harpur’s Hill facility will be re-opened pending a cleaning operation following anti-social behaviour. The facility manager will also be investigating what deterrent measures might be ‘available to ease the problem for the future.’

The email continues in relation to Anderson’s Park which states that the ‘condition of the existing play area has already been earmarked as requiring investment through the draft strategy action plan’. Council has however stated that it will link with the Estates department to see ‘what small scale investment can be put in place as a holding position’ pending council decision on the investment action plan.

Estates will also look into a clean-up of surrounding grounds within which the play park sits.

Continuing the email mentions that the play park will take some time to be developed and be put into action and that that it may require local consultation to ensure it fits the needs for the residents of the Borough.

SDLP Councillor Stephanie Quigley said ” The current plan to invest in Anderson’s park , no matter how small,as an interim solution is to be welcomed.

It is a well used park in a prime location but needs significant investment in the future. I am delighted that there will be a much needed good clean up of the surrounding area as it is a lovely area in the heart of our town. A good outdoor play park is an essential building block in a child’s development which helps them thrive not only physically and socially but emotionally too.”
