GREEN AND OPEN SPACES IN WESTFIELD

Do you use the green and open spaces of Westfield?

Perhaps you are a dog walker who enjoys Waterside Valley, or you may take your family to the play areas and cycle paths of Westfield. Possibly you belong to a group which goes on nature walks or runs in our green spaces. Whatever your background, if you use the green and open spaces of Westfield you may like to take part in the Westfield Green and Open Spaces Group.

This group is set up to protect and enhance the green open spaces of Westfield, including their accessibility. Helping to prioritise the use of funding from developer contributions designated for green open spaces in Westfield forms part of their work.

Your input can be as little or large as you like. You might like simply to receive the minutes of the group and email some thoughts. Or you might like to come along to meetings, put forward your suggestions and work towards seeing them come to fruition. Input at all levels is welcome.

We hope to hear from you. Please contact the Westfield Parish Clerk on council@westfieldparishcouncil.co.uk or call 01761 410669 or look at the website to monitor the progress of the group www.westfieldparishcouncil.co.uk
