Involving the Council

The successes that have been enjoyed by the now-established Friends groups have led to more communities wanting to improve their own local park. The Parks service has listened to the requests that have been made for more information, help and support, and has developed a response to this, including:

  • Producing this guidance
  • Allocating Groundwork South’s Green Space Project Manager as a direct point of contact for communities
  • Giving on-going information and support
  • Fundraising, financial and practical support

Torbay Council welcomes the opportunity to work with
communities as they are able to voice the issues faced in areas of Torbay. The council are keen to work with these communities to make real, sustainable change in parks and green spaces which enables wider engagement with the natural environment. Your Community Green Spaces Project Manager with Groundwork South is your first port of call for working with Torbay Council.
