Any ideas for the future of Northumberland public parks?

PEOPLE across Northumberland are being asked for their views and suggestions on the future of the county’s network of public parks.

PEOPLE across Northumberland are being asked for their views and suggestions on the future of the county’s network of public parks.

County council bosses are seeking feedback on how the parks can be improved and made even more of an asset to local people and communities.

Some are now actively supported by friends groups, which provide a vital link to the local community, and the new survey is aimed at helping these organisations in their work.

Trevor Violet, the county council’s community spaces manager, said: “The friends groups carry out a range of practical activities in the parks, from litter collection to planting and clearance works, as well as raising funds for improvements. They aim to protect and improve their local park for the benefit of the local community. The survey will provide them with guidance on how they can further support the maintenance and development of these indispensable community facilities.”

The survey can be completed online from now until March 31 on the council’s website under New Consultation. Alternatively, it can be downloaded at http://bit.ly/NCCParksSurvey
