Change of owners for Chasewater Country Park
Staffordshire County Council took over the running of Chasewater Country Park near Burntwood from Lichfield District Council on Tuesday April 1st.
Bosses say that a raft of improvements is planned for the site but no details yet of exactly what they will be.
Access and parking, especially on the Burntwood side needs looking at, and the Brownhills side is none too clever either when the sun shines! Parking areas are soon filled so cars are parked on the road, leaving a single lane for traffic to get in and out, plus pedestrians, some of whom like to walk on the road, and it’s also very difficult for cyclists.
Among the planned improvements is a shuttle bus to take families to the park during the school holidays and for special family-friendly events in the summer.
We wish Staffordshire County Council all the best on improving an already excellent facility.
