On Monday July 17 2017, the Council’s Parks Transformation Team presented their findings to the City Council’s Cabinet about the potential for a new charitable trust to manage the City’s parks and open spaces. This included the proposed business model, and the report on the passionate public response to the recent public consultation on the future of Newcastle's parks, allotments and open spaces. Cabinet reviewed progress, interrogated the financial and operational implications and decided whether or not to support further work on the charitable model. The full proposal was then worked up into a full business case and implementation plan for final Cabinet decision in October. The team fed back to the public, in person, at five locations around the city in 2017. The team explained the work to date, results of the public consultation, Cabinet’s decision and next steps. The cabinet report and supporting documents can be found here: Parks and Allotments 2017 Papers. A short summary of the findings is here: Consultation Findings. Thanks to everyone who took part in our consultation.
