Stockport Council plans improvements to Alexandra Park

Stockport Council is holding a consultation session on plans to revamp Alexandra Park.

Stockport Council in Cheshire is running a public session on 15 November for local people to share their views on how they would like to see Alexandra Park improved.

Alexandra Park in Edgeley does not have a Friends group or a Green Flag award and the council is hoping to improve the park.

The event will give residents the chance to meet council staff and ward councillors, and discuss how they would like to be involved in the decision-making process for the park and consulted on future improvements.

Executive member for leisure John Smith said: "I would urge local residents to attend the drop-in session and put their ideas forward on the future plans for the park.

"Attending this event is a great way for residents to make their views known and suggest improvements that can boost their local area."

The event is being held at the Alexandra Park Bowling Pavilion from 11am to 1pm.
