Over the summer we’ve been asking residents of Moulsecoomb and Bevendean about green and open spaces in the area.
Working together with Local Wild Spaces, a collaboration of local outdoor community groups, we asked residents about their favourite open and green spaces, how they access them and what they thought needed improving. The purpose was to help identify potential projects around the local green spaces, bring people together, help people to enjoy the neighbourhood, and increase the number of outdoor, sports and health activities.
Many people took part and the outcomes have now been analysed. Priorities have been set with some projects already in motion such as:
- Planting trees on the Avenue green,
- working on Maggie’s Corner playground,
- creating an Outdoor Gym at Wild Park &
- planning outdoor community events for 2020.
You can see a summary of the findings below, and for further information, or to get involved, contact Anke Thurm, TDC’s Community Development Worker in the area, on 07449 464695 or [email protected]
