Have your say on Morecambe’s Happy Mount Park

Two consultation events will be taking place at Morecambe’s Happy Mount Park as part of the first stage in creating a masterplan for the park.

The events will take place on Tuesday 9th July from 3.30pm to 6.30pm and Saturday July 13 from 11am to 3pm and will ask park users for their views on its future.

There will also be a chance to sign up to a new Friends of Happy Mount Park group.

Councillor David Smith, Cabinet member with responsibility for parks and open spaces, said: “These events are the perfect opportunity for people to have their say on the future of one of Morecambe’s most popular and well-loved attractions.

“The park means different things to different people and we want to capture all of these diverse experiences and views.

“We also want to know what attracts people to the park and what they would like it to look like in the future.”

The public events will be followed by consultation with specific groups with an interest in the park including the current volunteers, leaseholders, bowlers, police and councillors to ensure everyone has the chance to have their say.

There will also be further opportunities as the masterplan starts to come together.

• If you’re not able to make it to one of the two consultation events you can submit your views to Helen Ryan, public realm officer, at hryan@lancaster.gov.uk or telephone 01524 582822.
