As reported previously, Councilllors Joe Naitta and Eric Ashburner, along with the 3 other Blagreaves and Littleover Ward Lib Dem councillors and Friends of Littleover Parks, are working with Council officers to decide how the £333,000 money from housing developers is to be spent.

One of the priorities is to open up the track from Oaklands Avenue to the Millennium Wood and lay a tarmac footway/cycleway. Even after a lot of searching, no owner of the track has been found, but the Council will still have to do a compulsory purchase order.

On the ground, Friends of Littleover Parks have started to clear the overgrown track at the Millennium Wood end.

Other work includes improvements to Heatherton Pond, Clemson's Park, Millennium Wood and Sunnydale Park.
