Heaton Park event community consultation group

The voice of local residents is important to what we do here at Heaton Park, especially when organising major events. We want to make sure that the local community are informed and feel that their views are heard.

The Heaton Park event community consultation group is a condition of the premises licence for the park and is a group made up of residents, councillors, council staff and partners from Manchester, Bury and Rochdale councils.

The group works to lessen the impact of events at the park and helps to form realistic proposals for addressing them.

The group does not have any statutory or legal authority to object or deny applications for events, but it gives a genuine opportunity for consultation with local people.

The group meets before and after each major event held in the park

The role of group members

The members are representatives for the areas where they live and bring local people's concerns to the meeting, and give feedback to them.

We are currently looking for someone to represent Sheepfoot Lane. If you are interested email We approve new members with the group.

What was discussed at the meetings?

We want to be transparent about what happens in the meetings and have provided links to various documentation.

How to raise your concerns

There are several ways to contact the group.
