We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes.

We asked

A consultation exercise which engaged approximately 900 residents across South Ribble was undertaken to understand what local residents and stakeholders thought about the council’s ‘Green Links’ proposals.

 

The Green Links programme is a unique and innovative new approach designed to help improve the overall health and wellbeing of residents in South Ribble.

You said

Green Spaces should be:

  • Protected and enhanced (supporting wildlife and natural habitats);
  • Accessible (this includes for cyclists, walkers, horses and those living with disabilities);
  • Safe (well-lit spaces);
  • Spaces for communities to come together and or spend time relaxing.

A Health, Wellbeing and Leisure Campus should:

  • Provide a diverse offer – not just a gym or pool;
  • Be local;
  • Provide access to information, advice and support.

Parks should:

  • Have a huge role to play in being spaces for encouraging wildlife and natural habitats;
  • Spaces where families and people come to relax and play;
  • Be accessible to all users, with better paths.

Bent Lane and Balcarres Green:

  • You said that you didn’t want these areas to be built upon

We did

Following the results of the consultation, a series of projects have been proposed which will:

  • Create new Green Links in the borough in the shape of new cycle or pedestrian routes which will connect existing parks and open spaces together;
  • Commission three new play areas and provide improvements to existing parks and;
  • Introduce a series leisure projects which will see new playing fields created across the borough;
  • Bent Lane and Balcarres Green will not be built upon and improvements to the areas will be made in consultation with residents.
