Consultation on Redlees Park
by Marco Cillario Fri 26 February 2016, 5:32 pm
Consultation for the planned revamp of Redlees Park in Isleworth is under way and residents are being asked to give their views.
The council has appointed architecture, landscape and urban design consultant Adams & Sutherland to produce a masterplan on refreshing the landscape and the buildings in the park, which it will devise through public engagement.
Residents were able to share their opinions on the plans at two concurrent events on 27 February 2016, which ran from 10.30am to 1.30pm, at the Isleworth Leisure Centre in Twickenham Road and at the park’s playground.
Ideas included rebuilding or converting the changing room block, rebuilding the playground, improving parking facilities, pathways, entrances, signs, benches and planting and maintaining the historic character of the park.
The masterplan will also focus on the existing buildings, including artists’ studios, and the sport facilities.
Councillor Ed Mayne, cabinet member for public health and leisure, said: "Redlees Park is very important to the local community, which is why we want local people to let us know how they think we can maintain and improve the park, so it can continue to be somewhere where everyone can visit and enjoy."
The consultation period started at the end of last year, with residents expressing their opinions on 5 December. They will be heard again before the end of the consultation period in March.
