We have been allocated some funding to improve Astey’s Row playground and have appointed landscape architect firm Wayward to design the scheme.
We held a first round of consultation on Saturday 13th May 2017 which was very well attended and gave the design team the opportunity to meet with residents and park users. A full consultation report and summary can be found at the bottom of this page but in the main you told us that you would like to see more natural play in Astey’s Row, a better ballcourt and more seating and we will be taking these comments on board as we move into the design stage.
What happens next?
The next consultation is scheduled for Saturday 9th September, from 10am until 2pm in St Stephen’s Church. More information on this event will be sent out nearer the time but we will be presenting the proposed design scheme for Astey’s Row and will want to hear your thoughts on it so please save the date! The design team will be there and will be able to answer any questions you might have.
We will continue to update you as the project progresses. If you have any questions or would like to make a comment, please email Project Officer Lara Ellington-Brown. You will also be added to the mailing list to ensure that you do not miss out on any future project updates.
