Master plan

The West Park master plan (PDF, 1.62MB) has been developed to help us plan the sensitive enhancement of West Park. At the moment it is aspirational but we hope that, by working in partnership with the community, we will be able to turn some of these ideas into reality. Do you have any ideas or comments you would like to share with us about West Park? If so, send your comments to parks@ansa.co.uk
