Have your say on parks

What do you think of Merton Council’s plans for protecting and improving the parks and open spaces in the borough over the next 5 years? The council needs your views on their draft Merton Open Space Strategy by 8 April 2004.

Areas covered in the strategy include the vision for open spaces and a number of actions that need to be taken to achieve the vision.

The council has sent a summary of the draft strategy to various community groups in the past week, to find out what the community think of the strategy. Following the consultation on the draft, a final version of the strategy will be produced in the summer.

To comment on the strategy or for more information, please see the website http://www.merton.gov.uk/openspaces/ or phone 020 8545 3235/3952. Comments should reach the council by 8th April 2004.
