Introduction

Following the survey that was done back in 2015, one of the main items identified from the responses was the need to invest in the variety of existing open spaces.

Grange Big Local has appointed Space + Place Design to produce an Open Space and Environment Strategy. This Strategy will help GBL to identify a series of projects to implement over the next 10 years.

This questionnaire is looking to get a more detailed view from the residents and users of the area over what they want and need.

Your feedback will help shape a list of potential projects for the area. Once these ideas have been put together, we will present them to the community in a consultation event, which we hope will take place later in late Spring/ early Summer.

Grange Big Local is always looking for volunteers to get involved and help them deliver their vision for the area. If you are interested, please add your details at the end of this questionnaire.
