The RHS is opening its fifth national garden in Salford in 2020. Over time the garden is expected to become one of the largest visitor attractions in Greater Manchester and Salford City Council, the RHS, Peel L&P and the Marriott Worsley Park Hotel and Country Club are keen to ensure that as many visitors as possible can arrive by sustainable modes of transport.

Funding for the scheme is not guaranteed and your comments and endorsement will help support a full business case submission to the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) to secure funding to implement the scheme.
You are invited to give your views on the proposals during the two-week consultation period between Monday 13 January to Friday 24 January 2020.
