Preston Park Improvements

The work on producing plans for Preston Park and Hall is moving rapidly now. The draft plan went through Cabinet and is approved as the basis for a funding bid to the Lottery. The consultation on detail carries on meanwhile. Anyone wishing to comment (and we urge everyone in the ward and elsewhere who cares about the park to do so) can go to Stockton Council's on-line consultation
There are suggestions about car parking, play facilities, rejuvenating the planting schemes and better access to the river amongst others. One thing missing is any indication of how young people can enjoy their skateboards, bmx and mountain bikes without ruining the Quarry Wood nature reserve or the riverside footpaths, and Eaglescliffe councillors have pushed for that to be included at every possible opportunity.
You have until the end of the month to register your ideas. So if you want a park that you can enjoy - make your voice heard.
