A HUGE masterplan could see parts of Trafford’s Longford Park overhauled if a multi-million-pound lottery bid is successful.

Volunteer group Friends of Longford Park have been working since last year to secure funds to make a catalogue improvements.

Group chairman Nigel Woodcock says as much as £3m could be raised if the project is backed by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

“It would be amazing if we could secure the funds,” he said.

“However, we are only in the infant stages of the bid ­— and really do need the support of the community to help make the project a success.

“We need as many people as possible to comment ­— and help shape the masterplan ­— essentially it’s all about delivering improvements that residents want to see.”

Here is a list of the kind improvements that could be done: 

* The popular Pet’s Corner, currently home to chickens, guinea pigs, rabbits, ducks, and Gandalf and Frodo the two goats could be expanded.

* Improvements to the Shippon and Longbarn buildings, which are currently in disrepair.

* The tennis courts and football pitches could also be upgraded.

* And a new tree trail could also form part of the masterplan.

* The remains of the entrance to the former Longford Hall could also be improved.

Meanwhile, council boss in charge of environment and air quality, Cllr Steve Adshead,  also called for the public to take part in the consultation.

“Longford Park is a major asset for Stretford in terms of its open space and environmental role, but also in terms of local history, culture, health and wellbeing, place shaping, play, sport and leisure,” he said.

“It is important that as many people as possible get involved with this project so that we can develop a really strong masterplan and bid.”
