Case study: Public consultation in land reclamation - Mersey Vale Nature Park
This case study is part of a specially written series focusing on our local action projects. They are designed to show you how some of our best projects were delivered. Each case study provides background information, examines the original project idea, methodology, funding information, looks at who was involved, and draws out lessons learned from the experience.
We hope these case studies will prove useful and inspirational, especially for those delivering similar work.
This case study focuses on the public consultation work which was undertaken around the creation of the Mersey Vale Nature Park in Heaton Mersey, Stockport.
