FOLLOWING a campaign started in the summer to award ‘Green Space Designation’ to Parker Road Recreational Park in Grays, Councillors Kerin, Pothecary and Fish have welcomed the news that a consultation and engagement process is to begin in the new year.
In a joint statement, they said:
“We are looking forward to the engagement and consultation process on Green Space Designation beginning in the new year. This park is a fantastic piece of green space nestled in the heart of very dense urban area.
“The park is widely used by the community, and is treasured as a place of play, exercise and recreation. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it is that urban communities need their green spaces to be protected.
“We look forward to engaging with our residents in the new year and working hard to give the Parker Road Recreational Park the status it deserves.”
