At a Working Group meeting Monday 10th October the environmental charity Groundwork presented their findings on the current condition of the Falkland/Fairfax Open Space and put forward suggestions for improvement. Generally speaking play equipment unsurprisingly tops the list. There is also landscaping and keeping community space for street parties etc. Lots of good ideas came out of the meeting.
The Working Group is made up of councillors, council officers and community representatives. A community consultation will begin later this year so that people can feed in their thoughts, wishes and ideas for improving the open space. This consultation will finish March 2008. From there the hard work of funding will begin!
