Longhill Park

With Longhill Park in Dalgety Bay such a popular open space and surrounded by residential property, it is a regular subject of conversation with constituents, particularly relating to maintenance of trees. Like much of Dalgety Bay, the park is maintained but not owned by the Council, which restricts what the council can do. The Council is in the process of trying to identify the owner but this process can be complex. As well as requests relating to tree maintenance, we have also received requests for improved litter picking and greater provision of bins and benches.  We have followed up on each of these issues and there has been an improvement in litter issues. We have sought possible sources for benches but with no spare benches within the council and without extra spending, it is proving difficult. We are exploring the option of benches being funded through sponsorship or donations as a memorial and would welcome residents views on this approach.
