3rd August 2017- By Dayna Farrington
COUNCIL bosses are set to discuss future development plans for Brinton Park after their bid for £2 million lottery funding was unsuccessful.
Wyre Forest District Council was looking to reinstate the heritage aspects of Brinton Park, which have been lost over time, as well as create a place which will serve the community for the next 100 years.
The council had worked with the community to develop the plans and a public survey was carried out last summer – with widespread support for the project.
However recently, the council found out that their application for a Parks for People grant of up to £2 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund was unsuccessful.
A spokesman for the council confirmed that after discussions with their partners, the council are set to resubmit their bid for lottery funding at the end of August.
Wyre Forest District Council leader, Councillor Marcus Hart, said:
“We are really disappointed to learn that our application for a Parks for People grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund was unsuccessful on this occasion.”
“The team put a huge amount of work into gathering the information and devising a plan for the bid.”
“This has resulted in us enhancing great partnerships with organisations that are based in the park and the wider community.”
