As part of an ‘Investing in Ideas’ Big Lottery-funded project, Buchan Development Partnership is working with Aberdeenshire Council to undertake a public consulation exercise to review the current children’s play park provision at Aden Country Park in Mintlaw.

Views are being sought on the existing children’s play provision along with possible future developments of this popular community facility within the park.

The public will be given the opportunity to have their opinions heard through an online and offline questionnaire, as well as at a series of local events and public meetings.

Aden development worker, Neil Shirran said: “It’s really important that we hear what people think about the children’s play park provision in Aden Country Park.

“Not only will the feedback provide invaluable guidance and support for any future funding applications it also provides another opportunity for the local community and visitors to Aden to get more involved in how this much loved park can be developed for the good of the community.

“We would therefore be very grateful if folk could spare five minutes of their time to complete the survey, helping to both identify the needs, gaps and aspirations of the community.”

Folk can have their say by visiting and filling in the online questionnaire.

“It’s your park so please tell us what you think,” he added.
