The Parkinson Ward History Project is a project of the Sunnybank District History Group.
Late in 2012, Councillor Angela Owen-Taylor, Councillor for the Parkinson Ward, asked if a history of the Parkinson Ward area, based on a collection of oral histories from the Ward residents, could be carried out by the Sunnybank District History Group.
This scoping study report was commissioned as a preliminary stage of the project. The scoping study would enable the Sunnybank District History Group to work from a project plan from July 2013, to record oral histories from Parkinson Ward residents for compilation in a book publication (including a professionally-produced history of the area).
The main phases of the project started in July 2013. Oral history research will be completed at the end of March 2015.
