Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council is to carry out refurbishment work to four play parks in the area.

The council will revamp Kilmakee, Ballyoran, Hill Street and Barbour Playing Fields.

The Chairman of the Leisure and Community Development Committee, Alderman Paul Porter, has called on local residents to attend the public consultation sessions regarding the refurbishment programme.

“Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council will shortly begin refurbishment works at Barbour Play Park,” he said.

“Public consultation sessions will take place to enable community feedback before proceeding with the plans for Ballyoran Play Area, Kilmakee Play Area and Hill Street Play Area.

“The Council will facilitate the sessions in order to listen to local resident’s views.”

Alderman Porter continued: “Play and recreation development is so important for children’s physical and mental well-being. The Council is committed to a rolling refurbishment programme for our play parks and has identified these four play parks for upgrade in 2016.

“I hope that local residents will come along to our public consultation sessions and give us their views so that local opinions can be gathered. The Council will take all views into consideration.”

The dates for the public consultation are: Ballyoran (June 14) from 4-8pm, at Ballyoran Community; Killmakee (June 16) from 4-8pm at Kilmakee Activity Centre; Hill Street (June 21) from 4-8pm at Bridge Community Centre.
