Quotes from Manchester Evening News article
“Victorian charm to be restored to a Whalley Range park”
A £4.5m project has started at Alexandra Park, Whalley Range, to restore its Victorian charm and bring it up to date. The year-long process is the biggest investment in the park’s 143-year history – and one of the largest ever in Manchester.
Senior council officer Eddie Flanagan, who has worked on the project since 2003, said:
“This project has been a long time in the making, but residents have never lost their enthusiasm, even when our first bid was knocked back and that’s carried us along.
“To come through all that and now finally see work starting is incredibly exciting.
“Another exciting part of the project is finding a model where the community have more of a say in how the space is used and money is spent, which will be a first for Manchester.
“The primary purpose is getting more people in to enjoy the park in a light, airy space which caters for a wide range of interests.”
So Thank You. We 3000 plus on the petition asking you to care for our trees really appreciate it! Especially your concerned listening council ears these last 2 months !
A Great Start on the trees well done!
And Yes we are excited about it too in a different way though!
And as community we still want the “more say” you speak of.
We have been asking for over 2 months now since we manged to discover the tree cutting numbers were and details when you publicly released the information on Dec 1st 2012 at the council OPEN DAY when we could no longer object as planning had been closed for a year by then.
Were we all added to that so called list of consultation as if we were now consulted and happy about it all?
As for your ” light and airy” you certainly created that but 3000 plus don’t want your version.
Pity you didn’t listen before cutting all these trees.
