FIFE COUNCIL have played down concerns about flooding and damage to paths next to a £240,000 playpark in Dunfermline.

Central Dunfermline Community Council, who held a virtual meeting last week, had said there were still issues with drainage and that tarmac next to the facility in the Public Park had been cracked and broken by the contractor's lorries.

They said it was "estimated that a further £10,000 would be needed to put this work right" and that it "may now be too late to get the contractor to address it".

However, the council's capital projects manager, Alan Bisset, told the Press: "We are looking at ways of improving the path network in the Public Park, and exploring funding opportunities.

"There was minimum disruption to the surrounding path network during the construction of the playpark."

The playpark opened in late 2018.
