The design brief will include retaining the open green space at the heart of this park as a place for people and dogs to enjoy, as they do currently. We hope the design team will make the two main access points more welcoming, encourage appreciation of the open space, and be functional for access and transit.
You have told us you would like quiet areas with shaded seating, so further tree planting and a sensory walk and garden, that could integrate with growing projects are being considered. Creative land forms and planting schemes could encourage play, provide places to meet, and areas of greater biodiversity.
A key consideration will be the sustainability and low maintenance of proposed landscaping that works with nature and provides rewarding volunteering opportunities. This could include a phased approach, with the community involved in detailed planning and implementing various elements within a broadly agreed scheme.
