Cleator Moor residents are invited to take part in a project to create a vibrant community space in the town.
Copeland Borough Council and Home to Work have joined forces to launch the garden project, with the aim of transforming land on the corner of William Morris Avenue.
The plot is currently under-used, the organisations said, and they want to hear what people think about how it should be developed and used as a sustainable community space.
This could include some allotment space set aside for the growing of plants and vegetables.
Staff, volunteers and learners from Home to Work’s Skills Project – a charity based on Ennerdale Road – will work with members of the community to manage the development, having been granted it on a peppercorn lease from Copeland Council.
The project has been supported by £20,650 of Cumbria County Council funding; £10,650 from the Copeland Local Committee and £10,000 from Councillor Frank Morgan’s Local Members’ Allowance.
A series of drop-in sessions will take place next week to give the community the opportunity to make their suggestions at the outset
Drop-in sessions on site at William Morris Avenue will take place on May 25 at 11am, May 26 at 7pm and May 27 at 2pm.
People who cannot attend but would like to become involved are asked to email [email protected] or call 01946 814570.
