The request was successful.

Dear Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council,

I would request the breakdown of spending on three Wallasey parks over the last five years
Central Park Wallasey
Vale Park New Brighton
Harrison Park Wallasey
There appears to be an anomaly in the amount spent on each park

Yours faithfully,

Gaynor Upton

InfoMgr, FinDMT, Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council

Dear Ms Upton

 

Thank you for your recent enquiry regarding spending on Council parks.

 

Unfortunately we do not operate separate budgets for individual parks such
as Vale Park and Central Park.  Parks and Countryside budgets are managed
by Area - we currently have six park districts as well as additional
sites, all of which are managed, maintained and operate within their own
budgets.

 

We can provide overall spending for all Wallasey Area parks but this
cannot be broken down into the individual parks you expressed an interest
in.

 

Yours sincerely
