Dear Both.

I read your posts with interest. I would very strongly encourage you both as appropriate to work with parish councils in your areas as they are a very powerful local voice and have council tax (precept) raising powers. Many parishes manage and run parks already. I know Liverpool does not have huge numbers of parish councils but in both cases it might be worth investigating if there is local interest in setting one up – http://www.nalc.gov.uk/our-work/create-a-council .

Hope this helps,
