Council is proposing to upgrade the existing courtyard to capitalise on the space by resurfacing with turf, building a multipurpose stage with steps, installing curved wooden seating and adding much needed storage space.The upgrade will allow greater flexibility for play and community use and will enhance the open space at Annandale Community Centre.
