Fingal County Council (FCC) has launched its public consultation on the proposed policy on play provision for the youth of Fingal, writes Rose Barrett

Space for Play – A Play Policy for Fingal”, has been developed by the council’s Parks & Green Infrastructure Division. The policy aims to provide a framework for the provision of safe, accessible, inclusive, natural and engaging play spaces for all children and adolescents up to 17 years.

The consultation process presents an opportunity to view the proposed guiding principles of play provision, and to make comments or suggest changes as appropriate.

Providing excellent play facilities for all the children of Fingal and visitors to Dublin, is a priority for the council. FCC currently manages a network of play spaces on council managed lands ranging from playgrounds of various scales in local and regional parks, to multi use games areas and skate parks.

The council values submissions and feedback on the proposed policy to ensure the document best reflects the needs of the community it is intended to serve. The draft policy is available to view and make submissions through the council’s online consultation portal from 15 July until the 6 August next.
