The Council are bringing new proposals for managing Calderstones and Stanley Parks at their next Cabinet on Friday 19th May 2017 . ALL LOCAL RESIDENTS URGED TO ATTEND ALL HALLOWS TONIGHT TO GIVE THEIR VIEWS.

These plans were first suggested as part of recommendations in Simon O’Brien’s Strategic Greenspaces Plan (see link)




Cabinet agenda  – items 4e & 4f states it is seeking the procurement of new ‘operators’:

Transferring the operation of the park to an operator under a contracted out lease and concession agreement will provide the new operator with the freedom and flexibility to generate income and bid for grant funding unavailable to the Council and place the park outside of the scope of further cuts to the Council’s budget safeguarding it for future generations.
The Council’s objective is to gradually reduce its subsidy of the park to ideally remove it altogether over time“.

Calderstones has the Reader Organisation Community Interest Company (CIC) running key properties in the Park and Stanley Park also has an active CIC – both already receive major grant funding.
