Brinton Park and QEII Gardens

Background

CFP were successful in our proposal to produce a Management and Maintenance plan for both Brinton Park in Kidderminster and Queen Elizabeth II Gardens in Bewdley in order to secure the Green Flag Award for both sites.

Our Role

We worked with the Council to produce two new management plans for two very different sites within the district in order to ensure they retained the Green Flag Award and to enable the Council to apply for external funding for the sites.

Both plans were designed to provide the basis for managing, maintaining and developing the green spaces for the next 10 years. We sought to combine the management, maintenance and development of the spaces into an overall framework in order to achieve their visions.

Valuable input from a variety of Council Officers, third sector delivery partners, local colleges and local community groups as well as public consultation fed into the plans.

The new plans now include site plans, images to animate the document and celebrate the sites, up to date census data, relevant Health and Safety information, new ecological audit information and

Outcomes and Results

Both Brinton Park and QEII Gardens achieved a Green Flag Award, both as a result of high quality implementation of the management and maintenance plans at each site. Brinton Park has also since been awarded Round 1 HLF Parks for People grant and is now in its development phase.
