Following the Planning Committee on Redditch Borough Council voting to approve the application for a new café, toilets and more parking for Morton Stanley Park, Rachel said:

“This is exactly what unlocking Redditch’s full potential looks like; investment in our parks and open spaces for all residents to enjoy.

“This major improvement project will be the single-biggest investment in this much-loved park for years. I know from talking to residents just how much this investment in Morton Stanley Park will be welcomed.

“Like me, I’m sure everyone can’t wait to grab a drink & some food at the new café and make the most of this beautiful space.”
