Life Leisure have partnered with local residents of Brinnington to come up with new and innovative ways to get people moving as part of the Local Pilot.
As a result, a set of three maps have been created that are unique to Brinnington and each map highlights local landmarks and surrounding green space to help guide residents and visitors alike on what they can see and do in the community! In November 2021 the three Maps were all launched and large versions were installed on the side of First House in Brinnington.
This fantastic resource wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the amazing community in Brinnington and partnership with Brinnington Big Local, Transport for Greater Manchester & Stockport Council.
A major focus through the Local Pilot has been on community input and feedback on what will help people get moving, with this feedback helping to establish projects that will benefit the whole community.
The creation of the That Counts in Brinnington Forum, which is made up of key partners and more importantly local residents, formed the initial idea of the maps.
Over time, this idea grew from sticky notes to three fully illustrated maps, with locals providing a unique input on the look and feel of the design and what needs to be captured and how. We would like to take the opportunity to thank Tonwen Jones for the collaboration in creating the maps.
