We are consulting on a long term plan for Stoke Park, a Grade II registered historic park, which aims to find a balance between protecting its important historic and ecological features, such as the World War 2 anti- aircraft gun battery, as well ensuring we provide a range of opportunities for people to enjoy the parkland. Some of the historic features are in need of repair and the site is currently on Historic England’s ‘Heritage at Risk’ register. The consultation will inform bids for funding – the aim is for Stoke Park to be financially self-funding through grants, income generation and use of the Dowry that can only be spent on the park.
We will be holding a number of guided tours and exhibitions.

Why We Are Consulting
Improvements need to be made to Stoke Park and there is now an opportunity to bid for £3m of funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Consultation on proposals for where this funding and any future funding should be spent is essential so that money gets spent in the right places. We want to know what the priorities for improvement are for visitors to the estate, and also what would encourage visitors from across the city to visit.
