Improving Hoylake’s open spaces

Improving Hoylake’s open spaces
November 7, 2012 admin

In section two: Improving Hoylake’s open spaces, we asked what you thought of the following:

2a Creating an area along the promenade for outdoor sports/activities for the young and not so young
2b Supporting a properly constructed skateboard park somewhere in Hoylake
2c Creating better quality play areas and more activities for all age groups
2d Allowing the beach to evolve naturally and encouraging more wildlife


This is what you thought:

There was no consensus on item 2d. This area was therefore explored further. First, we offered the following supporting reference:
