Have you say about what recreational activity and leisure facilities you want to see on Stone’s Westbridge Park.
The Borough 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.
The Borough Council, and their consultation partner, have identified a number of potential key users of the new and existing facilities. These have been detailed in the consultation plan, details of which can be found at www.staffordbc.gov.uk/westbridgeparkconsultation
If you’d like to provide your own feedback then here’s a direct link to the online questionnaire. The survey will close on 16 March 2018 and the consultation website contains a breakdown of the facilities on offer in Stone. If you complete all the questions and provide your contact details at the end of the survey, you will be entered into a prize draw for a £100 gift voucher.
The questionnaire asking about YOUR usage of the park, what’s important to you and also why you don’t visit.
As part of the consultation Stafford Borough Council received feedback in the summer from a number of youngsters. The feedback was 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 leisure centre, including swimming pool, isn’t included in this consultation as work has began this week on building it. More details can be found here -> New Stone leisure centre build begins
