Improving the wheeled sports area has become priority for this stage of the project so we will be holding a consultation event in the park. We would love you to come down and have your say about the space – this is a great opportunity to influence the design and flow of the new facility.
The event is at Clarence Park,10th July at the Wheeled Sports Area 2pm – 4pm.
In preparation for the afternoon, we’d like you to complete the small questionnaire and sketch sheet below so we can capture your feedback (click on images to enlarge). You can bring the completed sheet down to the meeting on the day (if allowable with COVID restrictions) or you can complete it by clicking here: Wheeled Sports (skate park) design. Alternatively, you can take a picture / scan and email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please feel free to share the sketch sheet and questionnaire with your friends – it would be great to get as much information as possible before final plans are agreed.
Thank you for your time and continued interest.
Following lots of consultation and feedback from the local community, we’re delighted to be able to share the plan for the intended Clarence Park improvements.
There is now a Friends of Clarence Park group working in partnership with Proffitts and Bury Council to deliver the plan and help make the changes.
You can click on the image below to enlarge the plan and take a look. Posters will also be displayed in the park. The first phase will focus on the skate park area – we’ll share more details with you soon.
If you have any questions or feedback please leave a comment below and someone will get back to you. Also, if you would like to share this plan with anyone – please do! Thanks to everyone for their support so far. This is a long term project and it’s great to have support from the local community.
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.
