"Our vision" for Parkgate was developed following a disappointing outcome of the annual Cheshire Community Pride Competition in 2011, when we came bottom of all the entrants in our category. The then CWaC Councillor for Parkgate, Brenda Dowding, wanted to present a more cared-for image, that reflected the former glory of Parkgate. Together we developed a vision of how Parkgate might look better, and the steps that needed to be taken to achieve that vision.
The full text of that vision can be read here. The narrative identified various agencies and called on them to perform specific actions to achieve "Our Vision". Already, some of the actions have been addressed and visitors will notice that Parkgate is looking better than just a few years ago.
The following is a list of outstanding actions for those agencies that still need to be addressed to improve the village of Parkgate for residents, workers and visitors alike:
The sea wall has now been cleaned
New Heritage gateway signs erected on Boathouse Lane ...............and on Station Road
Two of the Bronze Heritage plaques that have been placed on buildings in Parkgate to commemorate the heritage of those buildings. 7 plaques initially have been placed, and it is hoped that more will follow.
