Parish Council – Current Consultations

Madeley Parish Council will shortly be consulting with Parishioners about the proposed budget for 2017-2018.

 

 

 

Staffordshire County Council have announced plans to review the future management of Staffordshire’s countryside parks and green spaces.

After months of consideration and preliminary talks with interested parties, including the Forestry Commission, Staffordshire Wildlife Trust, parish councils and users’ groups, a 12 week consultation is now underway and open for feedback on four proposed options.

Not all options will be suitable for all sites, and in some cases a combination of options may work most effectively. This consultation will provide the County with an opportunity to gather insight about how and why residents and visitors currently use the sites, and what their future needs regarding these spaces may be.

The four options under consideration are:

A: Maintain council ownership and seek opportunities to increase income from existing sites by working with volunteers, community, third sector and private parties;

B: Transfer management on a site-by-site basis to local community or voluntary sector groups, such as parish councils;

C: Establish a partnership of landowners to manage all green spaces in a particular area;

D: Establish a not-for-profit trading company to run and develop parts of the estate.

More information about these options can be found at www.staffordshire.gov.uk/countrysidereview.
