Improvements on the way for Millbrook Park Millennium Green

by Cathy Sheel

A public consultation is underway asking residents for their views on proposals to bring improvements to Millbrook Park Millennium Green in Kirkby.

The improvements could see the creation of a new circular all-weather path, wetland improvements, as well as entrance improvements.  The consultation will include a survey and information distributed to neighbouring properties.

The Millbrook Park Millennium Green Trust has been working with Knowsley Council and local residents to develop an Improvement Plan for the green. The path and wetland improvements are the first works to take forward the Millbrook Park Millennium Green Improvement Plan.  Read about the Improvement Plan on our website.

In 1999 the park was designated as a Millennium Green and the Millbrook Park Millennium Green Trust was set up to work in partnership with Knowsley Council to protect and look after the green. This is an important partnership which has seen the green continue to be receive the Green Flag Award for the last 15 years, which recognizes good park management.

Cllr Shelley Powell, Knowsley’s Cabinet Member for Communities and Neighbourhoods said: “Millbrook Park Millennium Green is located at the heart of Kirkby and is very popular and well used by the local community. Since 2005, the park has continued to secure the prestigious Green Flag Award which recognises well managed parks. This is an exciting time for the green, so we would welcome everyone’s comments on the current proposals. Your feedback will be used to shape future funding bids for the green.”

Please take a few minutes to complete the consultation survey. The closing date for comments is 26 October 2020.
