ActiveWestminster Launches Digital Supplementary ‘CycloPlay’ and ‘Bark Park’ Consultation

Following the initial consultations for the proposed ‘CycloPlay’ facility and the Carlton Gate dog area (‘Bark Park’) at Paddington Recreation Ground, ActiveWestminster have launched a 4-week supplementary consultation to further explore and understand comments raised by the initial consultations, which will be used as a tool to gain further insight and representation of public feedback.

The supplementary consultation will run until 12pm on Monday 26 October and is an opportunity for members of the public to gather more detail about the proposals and elaborate on previous commentary and suggestions. Both those who took part previously, as well as new respondents are encouraged to take part to have their say.
