Local Labour Councillor Elaine Wales has continued her work to improve local parks in Bletchley by securing an investment of £150,000 for improvements to Chepstow Park.
Cllr Elaine Wales has been working closely with West Bletchley Parish Council to secure the funding from them to protect and improve this much loved open space.
Chepstow Park is 4 hectares of open space with a small lake on the Racecourses Estate and is much loved and well used by local residents. Chepstow Park became a ‘Green Flag’ park in 2007 and Cllr Wales, along with the local Parish Council, is committed to continue improving local parks and to the ‘Greening of Bletchley’.
Cllr Elaine Wales said: “I am working to improve all the parks across West Bletchley and to protect our open spaces from development.”
This latest funding comes on top of £500,000 that Cllr Wales secured for the investment in Rickley Park.
Cllr Wales continued: “The ‘greening’ of Bletchley is a top priority for me, I was born and brought up in Bletchley and I want to see our communities’ parks and open spaces both protected and improved and the investment from the Parish Council is making this possible. I’m delighted I have been able to work so closely with West Bletchley Parish Council again to achieve this.”
