Have your say on Climate Ready Park in Bishopbriggs


Friday, 5 April, 2019

image of flowerResidents’ views are being sought on exciting new proposals to turn Etive and Woodhill parks in Bishopbriggs in East Dunbartonshire’s first Climate Ready Park.

East Dunbartonshire Council, in partnership with East Dunbartonshire Voluntary Action, is proposing to improve these open spaces which are located close to the centre of the town.

Proposals include providing above-ground surface water features to minimise localised flooding, new and improved paths, new children’s play facilities and increased opportunities for residents to grow their own food.

These Green Infrastructure improvements will also have significant benefits for wildlife and local habitats. You can have a say and find out more at the public consultation meeting.

The event details are:

Date: Monday 29 April
Time: 3.30pm – 6.45pm (drop-in)
Venue: Auchinairn Early Learning and Childcare Centre, Beech Road, Bishopbriggs, G64 1NE

Councillor Billy Hendry, Convener of the Place, Neighbourhood & Corporate Assets Committee, said, "This is an ambitious plan for a well-used park in the heart of Bishopbriggs.

"I would strongly urge local residents to take the opportunity to come along to the drop-in event and have a look at the proposals and express their views. Anyone unable to attend can request a copy and forward their comments directly to the Greenspace team."

Electronic copies of the proposal and a questionnaire can also be obtained on request from East Dunbartonshire Council by e-mailing greenspace@eastdunbarton.gov.uk

The proposals will be available on the consultation pages of the Council’s website (www.eastdunbarton.gov.uk) following the event.

Your comments will be used to shape the plans, which will be submitted as part of a major planning application to the Council and subject to external grant applications. Once a planning application is submitted a further opportunity to make representations to the planning authority on any development proposals will be made available.
