Littering in Platt Fields Park

Reading Time: < 1 minute

This weekend the sun is due to make a very welcomed appearance, and with the recent warmer weather many will be heading to Manchester’s parks and outdoor spaces.

Unfortunately, we have been made aware of recent behaviour in our community, including reports of large gatherings, significant littering and apparent disregard for the rules at Platt Fields Park which has resulted in the park being left in an unacceptable state. 

We expect that our students will respect the community they live in, and we know that the majority make a significant and positive contribution to the local communities where they live. We all have a responsibility to ensure that our behaviour does not have an adverse impact on our neighbours; both long-term residents and other students. That includes clearing up after ourselves if using public spaces like parks and taking rubbish home if public bins are already full. Littering is not only unsightly for those enjoying the park, but last year also caused real damage to the wildlife that lives there.
