Greenspace nr. allotments Finished

The greenspace next to the allotments (between Langham Place and Ivatt Way) is finally finished (with the exception of the lamp post which is due to be painted). Residents wanted the area to feel safer, represent more than just a dogs toilet, and provide a green anchor point to the neighbourhood. As a result, the area is now less cluttered, fruit trees have been planted, rail lines have been set into the path to provide a memory of the old Palace Gates Railway, the old fence was removed and replaced with a permeable line of ‘railway sleepers’, and a set of boulders installed to allow kids to play on their way to school. What next for the green space?
