Fairmuir Park Under Threat

Fairmuir Park Under Threat

No offering asset transfers of areas of our park.

Why is this important?

Today we learned that Alexanders Community Development have withdrawn their interest and proposal for the former Bowling Green. They advised that they had consulted and listened to the local community , most of whom had said that while they supported their idea, it was not the correct location for it. This does not mean that our campaigning is over as Dundee United Community Trust still have plans to take over the pavilion and areas of our park by way of an Asset Transfer offered to them by Dundee City Council.

Whilst DUCT have now modified their initial proposal confirming that it was no longer their intention to fence off a pitch, create car parking and add floodlighting, their interest still remains in the pavilion and one pitch. We feel that this is simply a "get one foot in the door" approach and that it would ultimately lead to them acquiring more of the park under the same scheme.

If you would like Fairmuir to remain the green space it is today, please sign the petition and we will do all we can to preserve our park.

How it will be delivered

We will submit our petitions along with our objections to the proposal at the relevant part of the process.
