MEMBERS of the public have been asked what they would like to see in a revamped park in Dunbar.

East Lothian Council has allocated external funding to renew the play area within Lauderdale Park.

The existing play equipment is in need of replacement and the council aims to provide “a challenging, exciting, and inclusive play space for toddlers to teens (age range 0-15), with a range of abilities, to play and hang out”.

A consultation was launched at the beginning of the week, with views to be submitted by Sunday.

A council spokesperson said: “We would like to ensure the new Lauderdale Park play area meets local needs and to involve people, particularly children and young people, in its development.

“Please note that the new play area will also feature seating/benches and bins as well as inclusive and accessible rubber safety surfacing on the ground.”

The cost of the revamp will not be confirmed until the consultation responses have been considered and incorporated in order to inform a tender brief.

The spokesperson added: “The costs are from using some of the council’s funding allocation from the Scottish Government for ‘Play Parks Renewal.”
