Cheshire East Council unveiled its Municipal Parks Strategy at a Cabinet meeting in Sandbach yesterday.
The strategy - which sets out plans for activities up to 2030 - focusses on the future management and development of the Borough’s municipal parks and explains how partnership working will be integral to this process.
The objectives of the strategy state clearly that Cheshire East is looking to increase the use of parks for all age groups. This stated aim will lead to greater social cohesion and the increased wellbeing of all residents.
The strategy sets out how the Council will work with key partners to build community involvement, use and pride in local parks and how this is particularly important moving forward with grant applications.
Councillor Sam Gardner, Cheshire East Council Cabinet member for open spaces, said: “We will continue to prioritise putting residents first and deliver what matters most to our communities. We want our parks to provide a broad range of high quality facilities for all our residents to enjoy.
“We are very fortunate to enjoy excellent working relationships with Friends Groups in many of our parks and it is partnerships like these that will serve us well moving forward with parks remaining at the heart of our community activities.”
The new strategy will encourage Cheshire East residents to live active and healthy lifestyles and get involved in making our communities safe and sustainable places to live.
