We are seeking an experienced Project Manager to lead in the delivery of our project to ‘Restore, Reveal and Revive’ Great Linford Manor Park in Milton Keynes. Thanks to a Stage 2 delivery grant award from the Heritage Lottery Fund, we are able to undertake major capital works to this 16 hectare historic parkland set within the bounds of the new city, including restoration of the 18th Century Water and Wilderness Gardens; improvement of public access infrastructure including footpath and car park provision to make the park more accessible for all; and to deliver the Park’s Interpretation Strategy and Activity Plan to engage with the community and make the park a more enjoyable place to visit.
