New sports facilities, an improved play area, more planting, improved biodiversity and better grassed areas are key features of new proposals for Shoreditch Park, which the Council is asking residents to have their say on. 

The designs have been developed as part of the £2m project to improve Shoreditch Park for local people, and follow a consultation last year in which 1,600 people told the Council how they would like to see the park improved. 

Landscape architects LUC have now developed designs for local people to have their say on, which include improved grassed areas, a new multi-use games area for basketball and football, an outdoor gym, and more trees, hedgerows, wildflowers and habitats to increase biodiversity in the park. 

The play area will also be replaced under the proposals, with new seating and social areas, new entrances and a new perimeter running track introduced. 

The consultation will also ask people for their views on the naming of a new public square outside the new Britannia Leisure Centre. 

Local people can have their say on the proposals online and in writing, with all residents in the area receiving a consultation pack in the post. 

Work to improve the park has been delayed by the coronavirus pandemic but, subject to the consultation and ongoing social distancing guidance, work could start in summer next year.

Local residents can have their say at https://shoreditchpark.commonplace.is/ or by returning the questionnaire which will be sent to residents in early October 2020.

The consultation closes on 11 November.
