Public asked for views on new park

Consultation event and online survey

Consultation

Plans for a new park on the former Ravenscraig steelworks site in Motherwell will be on show at a consultation event later this month.

We are developing ideas for a public park with walking routes, a sports pitch, play zone and events area and is looking for feedback from local residents and community groups.

An event will be held on Tuesday 27 November from 3.30pm to 7.30pm at Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility. Plans will be on display showing the proposed features of the park, which will be located on the land immediately in front of the sports facility. Staff will be on hand to discuss the plans and answer questions.

A questionnaire will also be available from 27 November until 3 December on our web site.

"As more housing and facilities are created on the Ravenscraig site over the coming years, it's important to also have greenspace for everyone to enjoy," said David Greer, Growth Programme Manager.

"This new park will be a focal point at the heart of the site for local people to walk, play and enjoy sport as well as to host community events. We also hope community groups will use the park for clubs and activities, creating a social space for people to meet.

"As the park is for the community in and around Ravenscraig, we want to hear what local people would like to see in there and the facilities they would use. So I would encourage people to come along to our consultation event on the 27th or complete our on-line questionnaire to share your ideas for the park."

Feedback from the consultation will inform a planning application to be submitted in December. Subject to approval of the application, work could start on site during spring 2019.
