Can you help South Hams District Council to plan improvements at Woodlands Park (The Spinney), Ivybridge by filling in a quick survey?

Ivybridge residents can share their ideas on what improvements they want to see in Woodlands Park via a new quick and easy to use online survey. Whether it's more seating, additional play equipment, planting more trees, or anything else, the District Council would like to hear your views.

South Hams District Council has allocated funding from local development to enhance the park, so this is a great chance for the community to have their say on what is important to them. 

South Hams District Councillor, Cllr Jonathan Hawkins, Executive Member for Health and Wellbeing, said: "We are very keen to get the views of all our residents who live near, or visit, the park.  From young to old, we want to know what the whole community want.  That's why we're encouraging everyone to complete this online survey.  It will only take five minutes and it will help to ensure that we spend our money effectively to offer the right facilities and create a landscape that is suitable for everyone." 

Local parks and green spaces have become increasingly important during recent times, with more people than ever using green spaces to relax and exercise.

The Council has declared a Climate Change and Biodiversity Emergency and is looking for opportunities within parks and green spaces to enhance biodiversity and offset the effects of Climate Change.   

Please complete the online survey and have your say at: www.southhams.gov.uk/woodlandspark

The consultation closes at midnight on Monday 14 December 2020.
