South Ribble Borough Council has launched an online survey which will form part of the major consultation exercise underway around its approach to health and wellbeing which is at the heart of the Green Links programme.
The Green Links are about connecting green spaces, parks and leisure campuses which link leisure facilities across the borough. We’re looking for residents to have their say on what they would like to see in the future for health and wellbeing in South Ribble by commenting on parks, leisure campuses, green spaces, play areas, cycle paths and walking routes.
The consultation is available at www.southribble.gov.uk/greenlinks and should take around 10 minutes to complete. Paper copies of the survey will also be available by request or at our Gateway.
Councillor Phil Smith, Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Leisure, said:
“The Green Links consultation events have been a massive success so far seeing hundreds of local residents attending to share their views on our new Health, Wellbeing and Leisure approaches as part of our Green Links programme.
It’s great to see so many people involved and we’d love to see even more people take part by completing our online survey. The short survey will only take 10 mins to complete but your responses will be vital for us in shaping plans going forward.”
The online survey will compliment a series of consultation events and planning workshops which are currently underway. The next workshops will take place on:
12 March at Walmer Bridge Village Hall, 6pm-8pm
20 March at Lostock Hall Library 5pm – 7pm
21 March Bamber Bridge Methodist Church 6pm – 8pm
26 March Penwortham Community Centre 6pm – 8pm
In addition there are drop in events at 4 pm – 8pm at South Ribble Tennis Centre on 14 March and Bamber Bridge Leisure Centre on 27 March.
Residents are encouraged to get involved in a number of ways:
- ONLINE: Online consultation survey can be found at www.southribble.gov.uk/greenlinks. Printed copies of the survey will also be available to collect from the Civic Centre in Leyland.
- POST: If residents require a paper copy of the survey they can request for it to be posted directly to them by contacting 01772 62 5625 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The Council will send the survey along with a pre-paid, addressed envelope for easy and free return.
- IN PERSON: We have a number of drop-in events and workshops planned. Details online at www.southribble.gov.uk/greenlinksconsultation
The consultation will close on Monday 1 April 2019.
