Have your say on our parks plans

Published on 18 January 2021

High Peak's parks and green spaces are amongst the Borough's best loved places - and the Council now wants to hear your views on how they're managed, improved  and developed in the future.

Working with partner organisations and community groups, High Peak Borough Council has drawn up a draft Parks Strategy setting out how it plans to protect, maintain and improve these spaces over the next ten years.

The Council is now asking for comments on the overall Strategy and the management plans for each of our formal parks which set out in more detail what's planned at each location.

Councillor Damien Greenhalgh, Deputy Leader and Executive Councillor for Regeneration, Tourism and Leisure, said: "We're really pleased to be able to share our ambitious plans for our formal parks and green spaces which we know are much-loved and well used by communities across the High Peak.

"When we made the commitment to our parks and open space in our Council Plan we knew the importance of having, and taking good care of, these places. The Covid restrictions on daily life has really brought their value into sharper focus now. This strategy sets the framework for how we will manage and develop these places in the future working cooperatively with our community.

"It is further supported by management plans for each formal park as we know people will be particularly interested in what's happening at their favourite park.

"We're now asking people to have a look at these plans, and the overall strategy, and tell us what they think of what we're proposing."

The consultation starts on Monday 18 January and people have until Sunday 14 February to share their views.

Councillor Greenhalgh added: "It's really easy to share your thoughts via the online form and we do really want to hear what you think.

"I'd also like to say a big thank you to our AES maintenance partner and community groups for their ongoing and valuable contributions and we look forward to continuing to work with them, and local residents and park users, as we deliver our plans in the coming months and years."
