470 Trees consultation event at Platt Hall

Local residents planting trees in Birchfields Park

Last weekend Creative Rusholme began a wider consultation with residents attending the Platt Hall In Between Open Day. Forty local residents gave us their views as to places in the area they would like to see trees planted and most of them signed up to be involved with the project to plant 470 trees in the area over the next two or three years.

The next stage of the project is to work with the Friends of Platt Fields, Birchfields and Whitworth Parks and to survey the rest of the area for possible planting sites. It is hoped that significant planting will take place in the new year.

The consultation in progress, using a large map of the area to identify possible planting sites.
