Improving the green spaces in Belle Isle

15 September 2023

A locality-based health needs assessment conducted within the Belle Isle North area of Middleton Park ward (from Windmill Road down to Moor Road) in 2021 brought increased awareness of the lack of usable green spaces. Key stakeholders and residents alike highlighted a lack of usable green spaces in the area and often spoke about vandalism in parks or areas of wasteland which could be repurposed.   

To this end, a working group comprising representatives from BITMO, Parks & Countryside (now called Climate, Energy & Green Spaces), ward councillors, youth groups and Public Health have committed to exploring options to address this issue, including potential funding opportunities.  The purpose being to bring these options to the community for input and collaboration and decision-making.  

You have told us which areas we need to focus on, and we have some ideas from you.  But we need your help again.  We need to narrow down the ideas and create a priority list.

The four areas and suggestions for improvement most people commented on were:

AreaSuggestions for improvement
Belle Isle Circus  Planters, bandstand/shelter, improved lighting, playground, picnic area, safer crossing
Low Grange View  Orchard, playground (with swings), trim trail, shelter
Middleton ring road/Middleton wayNew play equipment, remove play equipment, paint play equipment, seating,
