No Ball Games - What Do You Think?




20 November 2015

I have asked Dundee City Council for its views on whether we should follow Aberdeen City Council's lead and take down the 'No Ball Game' signs.

I am also seeking the views of local residents about this issue.

I was very interested to see media reports of Denis Law taking down 'No Ball Game' signs in Aberdeen.

I know that there are strong opinions around this.

I know that local residents need to be able to live in peace in their own homes but I also know that for many reasons we should be encouraging young people to be more active.

I am asking Dundee City Council for their views on this.

I would really welcome the views of local people about this.

Is there a way to encourage more activity from young people at the same time as ensuring that people can live in their own homes in peace and quiet?
