Life Leisure have partnered with local residents of Brinnington to come up with new and innovative ways to get people moving as part of the Local Pilot.

As a result, a set of three maps have been created that are unique to Brinnington. The first of the three maps launched in February 2021 and highlights local landmarks and surrounding green space to help guide residents and visitors alike on what they can see and do in the community!

This fantastic resource wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the amazing community in Brinnington and partnership with Brinnington Big Local, Transport for Greater Manchester & Stockport Council.


Maps Planning Picture That Counts Forum Brinnington

Community Focus

A major focus through the Local Pilot has been on community input and feedback on what will help people get moving, with this feedback helping to establish projects that will benefit the whole community.

The creation of the That Counts in Brinnington Forum, which is made up of key partners and more importantly local residents, formed the initial idea of the maps.

Over time, this idea grew from sticky notes to three fully illustrated maps, with locals providing a unique input on the look and feel of the design and what needs to be captured and how. We would like to take the opportunity to thank Tonwen Jones for the collaboration in creating the maps.

Coming soon..

Throughout the upcoming months, two more maps will be released!

Complimenting map 1, which showcases the surrounding green space Brinnington has to offer, the second map will highlight local walking routes and physical activity options to help keep the community moving.

The third and final map to be released will cover some fascinating historical landmarks for residents to explore. We're sure it'll make a great history lesson for the little ones! 

If you have any ideas on how to use these maps as part of your group or organisation, please email Ross McGuigan.
