What do you think of your local park or open spaces?
What do you think of your local park or open spaces? From today (10th August), Broxtowe residents are being encouraged to get online and have their say on parks and open spaces in Broxtowe Borough.The survey is available at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/rateourparks2020 and asks residents to rate parks and open spaces on a number of areas including how welcoming they are, signage, cleanliness, access and facilities available.
Councillor Helen SkinnerCouncillor Helen Skinner, Chair of the Environment and Climate Change Committee has said: “In the last year Broxtowe Borough Council has spent £700,000 on parks and open spaces in the area thanks to the Pride In Parks Initiative and the help of external funding. Our staff have also worked extra hard during the Covid-19 pandemic, at a time when local open spaces have been even more valuable to us all. Huge thanks goes to them for all their hard work. The programme of wild flower planting, which was suggested in a previous survey, is already giving joy to so many residents and it is these fruitful changes which benefit us all.”
“In the coming year, even more parks are set to benefit from the initiative which is committed to ensuring residents in the area have an opportunity to enjoy good quality open spaces and excellent play facilities. We’re really keen to hear from as many people as possible to help inform our improvement programme going forward.”
Following last year’s consultation, the Council have listened to residents and have made many improvements including introducing new play facilities at King George V Park Bramcote, Sherman Drive Open Space Chilwell, Hickings Lane Stapleford and Hall om Wong Kimberley.
The survey will be available to complete until 12th September 2020. The results will be reviewed from September until the end of the year and further improvements planned for 2021.
