Communal Garden Space Gets Facelift

Residents in Staveley will benefit from a new communal garden area that’s been created to reduce anti-social behaviour.

The garden, located at Devonshire Close, was once a run-down space and often attracted young people who used the area to drink and cause general nuisance to residents.

Councillor Jim McManus from Chesterfield Borough Council said: “We had made improvements to the flats on Devonshire Close but realised that the open space wasn’t welcoming or suitable for residents to use.

“Our local Neighbourhood Ranger has worked with various partners to transform this area into somewhere that local residents can meet and socialise and children can play safely.”

Students from Landmark, which is a specialist college for young adults with learning disabilities, did a great job of clearing the site, repairing an old seating area and planting flower beds.

There was also help from the Police, Staveley Town Council and the local garden centre at Staveley Hall.

Cllr McManus continued: “Residents can now take ownership of the garden and use it to their advantage, either to meet and relax or to grow their own plants. We also hope that as more residents make use of the garden it will deter the anti-social behaviour that’s previously been experienced.”
