Our borough has a number of sites waiting to be redeveloped, but Royton’s Labour councillors have decided to act to make the most of the opportunity while a key site in the town is unused. Rather than leave unattractive hoardings in place, Royton councillors have used their personal budgets to invest in resoiling and seeding land at the old health centre site to create a stunning wildflower meadow!
The results speak for themselves, but we were delighted to receive the following feedback from the relative of a local resident:
“I live in West Cornwall but have visited my parents regularly who live in Royton for many years.
Poor old Royton has sometimes looked rather ‘down at heel’ but, I can’t believe how lovely a flower meadow and the baskets have made the town look. It’s a joy to walk around it.
Thank you so much to whoever bravely allocated budget to this when these decisions are so difficult. Brave, but an uplifting use of limited capital. Royton is looking lovely – you’ll never know the small impact which this makes on many people’s lives but I’m sure it’s considerable.”
