Open and green spaces

The regeneration of the Brunswick neighbourhood will see improvements to many green space areas including:

  • new play facilities across the neighbourhhod
  • improvements to the local park
  • new community orchard
  • 25 new allotment plots

Brunswick will be transformed into a green, landscaped and pedestrian/cycle friendly neighbourhood.

A new green boulevard will diagonally connect the Apollo Theatre to Gartside Gardens creating an attractive tree-lined walkway through neighbourhood.  This will open up the estate and improve how residents get around providing a new pedestrian friendly route featuring extensive areas of grass and street tree planting.

Substantial investment is also being made to enhance the landscaping within Gartside Gardens with more trees and shrubs being planted.  In addition to this, recreational areas will be improved with new street furniture, high quality play areas and all weather sports pitches.

 In addition a new orchard and 25 city-sized allotments are being created just off the new boulevard to provide a new facility for local residents

The Council has demolished the old Medlock Primary School and Hillside Resource Centre. S4B will manage any future development sites to make sure they are safe, secure and clean and tidy.
