Have YOU had YOUR say about council proposals for a new play area?

Oct 21, 2018

Stockport Council is running an online-only consultation about the provision of an equipped play space for children aged 7-14. It offers a choice between two locations:

  • Peel Moat Open Space, between St Thomas’ Junior School and the golf course, next to the growing Bellway estate (Heaton Manor) or
  • Heaton Moor Park

The Friends of Heaton Moor Park recognise the benefits of more play provision for older children in our neighbourhood and consider that the Peel Moat site is the better option because

  • it would spread local recreation facilities over a wider area, while preserving well used and much-loved space in the Park
  • it is easily accessed by our community and by St Thomas’ School and Heaton School
  • it is currently unappealing and poorly laid out, so little used
  • conversion to a playground would provide some protection against the Peel Moat land being sold for further housing development

Please express your views by completing the Stockport Council online consultation about the North Heaton Play Area Consultation by Monday 5 November 2018.
