Residents urged to have say on park vision


    Residents have say on Holmcroft play area

    Residents are being urged to have their say on the latest designs for the revamp of a park in Stafford.

    The final stage of consultation for the improvements to Holmcroft play area is getting underway. Proposals include new play equipment for younger and older children, a wheeled sports facility and refurbished tennis courts.

    The Stafford Borough Council plans will also see the creation of new footpaths to form a circular route around the park, natural play features and an outdoor gym.

    Now the council wants local residents and school children to rate and comment on the proposals before they give the green light for work to get underway.

    People can have a chat about the plans with the design team and give their feedback at a series of drop-in sessions:

    • Friday 2 August. 2pm to 4pm. Holmcroft Library
    • Friday 2 August. 6pm to 8pm. Tillington Manor Primary School
    • Saturday 3 August. 11am to 1pm. Holmcroft Library
    • Saturday 14 September. 6pm to 8pm.Tillington Manor Primary School

    Councillor Carolyn Trowbridge, Cabinet Member for Leisure, said: “We are delighted to be moving to the next stage of realising the enhancements and improvements at Holmcroft Play Area. The concept proposal looks really exciting and offers something for everyone of all ages.

    “I’d urge residents to tell us or their local councillors, who have led on this vision, what they think of the proposals so we can get a broad range of views that will help us create a fantastic park. I will look forward to the results of the final consultation which will be a step closer to getting the build underway.”

    Leaflets will be delivered to local households to fill in and early next month (August) people will have the opportunity to complete an online survey. They will also be consulting with youngsters when they return to school in September.

    The borough council appointed Landscape Architects, Red Kite, to undertake the final stage of consultation with local residents.
