Salford City Council is launching a new way that people can help to shape the future of their neighbourhoods.
The new approach is called Commonplace, a web based tool that allows people to give their views about the places they live in, work and visit.
To kick-start the use of the new website, the council is inviting people to have their say on walking and cycling in Ordsall and the City Centre area of Salford as part of the Bee Network programme.
Work has already started on the Bee Network, a Greater Manchester plan to make journeys on foot or bike more attractive for everybody. The routes will be fit for a competent twelve year-old on a bike and a person walking with a double buggy. This means they are also suitable for people with mobility problems, physical impairments or adapted bikes for example. Salford City Council is encouraging local people to have their say so they can use the information to shape the plan as it progresses.
Residents, parents, school children, employees and employers in the Ordsall neighbourhood are being approached to see what improvements they would like to see to encourage more sustainable modes of travel locally.
‘Have your say on the Ordsall Filtered Neighbourhood’ launches on Friday 8 November. Residents can comment on the Ordsall Filtered Neighbourhood website.
