As you may know, we were asked to give people more time to complete and return the survey for Clarence Park. Here are the updated results:
Following this, we’ve now got a plan to move forward and will begin to liaise with partners and user groups to work out key priorities and identify the funding needed. We’ll keep you updated.
Thanks to everyone who completed the questionnaire. Here’s a summary of what everyone had to say:
We’ve already had some conversations with local residents and have attached a sketch design below which includes some ideas for improvements. However, we would really appreciate it if you could answer the questions on the short Clarence Park Questionnaire and let us have your thoughts and feedback before we finalise and prioritise any plans for the park. The survey is very quick and the responses you provide will give us really valuable information and insights.
Following a meeting last week with Bury Borough Council, we are pleased to announce that we will be working towards making Clarence Park, Bury the first intended Dementia Friendly Park. We aim to create and install a variety of durable dementia friendly features within the park which will encourage use, confidence and physical activity within the park by older people, their families and their carers. The first step will be to involve local people, schools and current users of the park including Persona, in determining what improvements can be made. Potential improvements may be interpretation / picture boards / signage / reinstating features / access improvements / sound posts / site furniture / colours etc. Keep an eye on this site for updates.
