Broxtowe park goers asked to help shape green spaces

10/07/24 - Residents have the opportunity to share their experiences on a number of selected parks through Broxtowe Borough Council’s annual Parks and Open Spaces Survey.

Councillor Helen Skinner, Portfolio Holder for Environment and Climate Change said: “Our green spaces are valuable for everyone in our community. Whether they’re being used for health and wellbeing, to support our wildlife or to bring people together for local events, they are vital areas of our Borough. How ever you use your parks, please take this survey as it is your opportunity to help us shape these spaces.”  

Responses to the consultation can help to guide improvements to green spaces across the Borough. Last year, Broxtowe residents said the play area  at Queen Elizabeth park in Stapleford could use some equipment for toddlers. The Council’s Parks team took on this feedback and completed improvements at this site, including the addition of a range of exciting new toddler play equipment.

The selection of parks in the survey is determined through a regular cycle, which ensures all of the Council’s parks are surveyed over the course of three years as part of the Pride in Parks initiative.

The survey only takes a few minutes and asks residents to tell the Council how they feel about selected local parks and open spaces by providing ratings on signage, cleanliness, facilities and the approach to nature and wildlife.

Residents can have their say by completing the survey online (Opens in a new window). The survey will be open until Friday 30 August 2024.

The consultation also supports the Council to uphold the Broxtowe Parks Standard. This standard is achieved by sites with high resident satisfaction, which this survey helps to assess.
