This consultation which closed on the 18 September 2023 sought the views from the people that live in the area and use the local green spaces. The results will help us focus on those issues that matter the most when we finalise our programme of improvements.

Issues that could be dealt with by the scheme include:

  • Enhancing neglected areas
  • Redesign of old planted areas to increase natural surveillance
  • Improving the layout of footpaths and removing inappropriate steps
  • Upgrading of open space
  • Ornamental tree, hedge or bulb planting where appropriate

Other similar improvements that are deemed a priority by the residents can also be considered.

Please note Environmental Renewal Schemes do not generally include:

  • Areas of resident only parking
  • Tree removal
  • Replacement of play equipment
  • Work on land not owned by the council

Next steps

We will review the consultation results and look at any local issues raised before drawing up detailed plans and issuing a full update to residents on what happens next.
