I live just around the corner of Hatfields, and have been going along to the steering group for the redevelopment of the Hatfields green space. It is a bit of grass land between the London Nautical School and the alotments, with several really tall trees, mostly used at the moment by dog walkers.

The redevelopment has been kicked off by the LNS, who are using the North end of the area as a temporary playground while their school is being rebuild. They have donated some money to improvements of the park, which has been matched by funding from the Waterloo Community Regeneration Trust. So the exciting news is that we have funding, we have planning permission, there are designers ready to be briefed - what we need now is more public involvement!

COME TO THE NEXT STEERING GROUP - tomorrow night 1st March 6-7pm DETAILS BELOW...

Lots of people have responded to the questionnaires, which is great, but it would be lovely to have more people come along to the steering groups - the more local enthusiasm that is shown, the more likely we are to get more funding and turn the scrub land into a really beautiful park.

Dog walkers - would you mind having a small 'dog loo' area and leaving the rest of the park dog-free? Let us know....

Gardeners - would you like the park turned into allotments? Or have a herb garden so everyone locally can come and pick fresh herbs? Let us know...

Should it be fenced & gated to keep out night time visitors? Or should it be accessible all the time?
What about lighting?

What about the tall trees blocking the sunlight - maybe they should be replaced by smaller root bound trees, or shrubs?

There are so many lovely things we could do, just let us know either by email or come along tomorrow night - TUES 1ST MARCH 2005 - 6 to 7pm
