The Parks and Countryside Service is developing a new Forward Plan for Hillsborough Park and would like to hear your views about the Park now and in the future.  The Plan will help set out a common vision and priorities and ambitions for how we will manage and care for Hillsborough Park over the next 5, 10 and15 years.

A strong vision and Forward Plan will help us pull together all different components at Hillsborough Park will help partners and user groups  work more effectively together to provide a great park experience for everyone. 

A key ambition is to achieve the Green Flag Award, which is a quality mark awarded to well managed parks around the country by environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy.  In Sheffield we already have 13 parks, gardens or nature reserves with Green Flag awards, including Norfolk Heritage Park, Sheffield Botanical Gardens and Weston Park.

Why your views matter

We hope you will agree that Hillsborough Park deserves to be on this list.  With your help we can understand what Hillsborough Park means to you, what you like, don’t like and what would be your priorities for improvement over the short, medium and long term.

The results of the survey will be anonymised and we will not keep your details unless you give us permission to contact you for more information.   We will share the overall results (but not any individual responses) with key partners and user groups at the Park.

Thank you for helping us to find out more about what you value about Hillsborough Park and the priorities for improvement.  You don’t have to answer every question, but the more you can tell us, the better we will be able to understand what you think is important.
