Cronton Parish Council and Knowsley Borough Council are seeking the views of local residents and users of Cronton's main public park. The consultation will look at how the park could be improved in the future. It aims to ensure the masterplan adds as much value as possible to the community and that the quality of the green space supports quality of life in Cronton and surrounding areas.
 
We want to seek your views to help inform a refresh of the masterplan for the whole of The Pasture, which includes improvements to the playing fields, walking paths, play facilities, habitat works and other improvements to enhance the park. Views expressed in the consultation will help us to develop and deliver this.

The consultation closes on 1 December, 2021. Have your say here.
 
There is also an opportunity to get more involved with the work at The Pasture - volunteers are always welcome.
