Pocket Parks and Parklets - These are small areas which members of the public can identify for protection as green spaces.  The “Yellow Brick Road” has been logged on the BEE network website by MSCS with a further proposal to be submitted for North Reddish Park.  Comments in support of these parks are requested by the website and your support would be appreciated.  Click  here  to see the BEE Network and Parklet Consultation Map User Guide, from where you can access the map and give your support.
