Parks Consultation

Greville-Smyth-Park.jpg

AGB IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THAT FOLLOWING SUCCESSFUL LOBBYING BY PARKS GROUPS, THE PROPOSED REDUCTION TO THE PARKS SERVICE BUDGET OVER 3 YEARS HAS BEEN REDUCED FROM £4,500,000 to £2,867,00

£963,000 of the proposed reduction is already happening this year with nearly half coming from increasing income. The parks consultation launched last week by the Council shows the current proposals for dealing with the additional £1,904,000 reductions in 2018-19 and 2019-20.

AGB will be holding a public forum early in 2018 to discuss what this will mean for the parks of Greater Bedminster:  in the meantime the consultation is here:

The consultation is in three sections – proposals on generating income; proposals for savings and ‘other proposals’. There is a text box at the end of each section where you can make detailed comments on the proposals.
