Involving the community in Staffordshire County Council's country estate

As part of the review of its country estate, Staffordshire County Council has recently held two information days - one at Chasewater in the south of the county and the other at Apedale in the north - to update invitees on the review process and to help community and voluntary groups, with an interest in a particular site, to get to know each other. The County Council is looking for organisations who would like to get involved in managing all or part of one of its country parks or other site, including greenways, or developing new activities on those sites.
