The Committee gave consideration to a report providing a further update to the Play Park Report considered by the Committee in March 2023.  The report highlighted the excellent responses to the play park adult and young people engagement in regards to the funding award of £938k awarded by Scottish Government for play park renewal to Argyll and Bute Council until 2025/26.  The report proposed that following analysis of engagement feedback Area Committees would be provided with a summary, specifically what local communities had identified as their priorities for play park users.




The Environment, Development and Infrastructure Committee –


1.    noted the engagement numbers of 1054 adults and 408 young people responses and that the officer managing this project would review each one over the coming weeks;


2.    agreed that once the consultation results had been fully reviewed, a report would go to each Area Committee to agree the priorities for each play park in their area and allocation of funding, within the area allocation (based on the number of play parks) would be allocated to individual play parks; and


3.    agreed the amended timeline as set out in section 4.4 of the submitted report.
