    Kids to help shape play in Stone

    A consultation on ideas for recreational activities and leisure facilities for Westbridge Park in Stone is now under way.

    Schoolchildren, residents and organisations are being asked to help shape plans for the popular park.

    Information can be found at www.staffordbc.gov.uk/westbridgeparkconsultation

    A multi-use games area, skate-park and new play equipment have been previously earmarked as part of a multi-million pound leisure offer for the town.

    Work is already under way on a new leisure centre with 25-metre, six lane swimming pool, alongside gym and fitness studios on Westbridge Park to replace the outdated building currently on site. 

    Now the council will be carrying out a series of consultations with, among others, residents, schools, community groups and local councillors. People can participate over the coming weeks in a number of consultation activities including online surveys, workshops and drop in sessions.   

    Stafford Borough Council received feedback in the summer from a number of youngsters about their expectations for a play park which will help as part of the wider consultation programme.

    Councillor Mike Smith, Cabinet Member for Leisure, at the council, said: “We want those people who will be using the facilities, young and old, to help us shape the future of facilities and activities in the town.”

    Concept proposals will be drawn up based on feedback from the first phase of consultation – with residents and organisations having the opportunity to comment on them before plans are put forward. 

    The first phase of the consultation will run for six weeks and for more information www.staffordbc.gov.uk/westbridgeparkconsultation
