In June 2017, YBY was commissioned by the ‘Friends of Wibsey park’ and Bradford Council to carry out some research into Wibsey park, a much loved but under used green space situated 3 miles west of the city centre. The aims of the research was to find out who uses the park, how they use it, and what would encourage them to use it more. More than 100 surveys were carried out, of users in the park, and households within walking distance, and we also talked 1-1 to a number of key stakeholder organisations, including local schools, sports clubs using the park and some third sector organisations that are also based there.
We then produced a feedback report, setting out all the responses from the consultation. This then was then discussed at a really well attended public meeting held at the bowling club in the park in October. The upshot of this was a short erm action pf measures that we will be supporting the Friends of Wibsey Park to develop,and deliver, over the next 12 months. A copy of the action plan can be seen below.
