Swindon Greens have expressed their support for a community-led rather than commercial bid to ensure that the Park is run for the benefit of the residents of Swindon and not principally for the benefit of those seeking to make a quick profit.

The Party also welcomed councillors from across the political spectrum working together to ensure a fair bidding process.

Two community-led bids have been received to run the site: one from senior staff at the Park and one from the Lydiard Park Heritage Trust. Swindon Borough Council also have the option of maintaining ownership of the site and implementing the business model of one or several of the bids.
