Westbourne Green Open Space Development - Public Consultation & Engagement

The Council believes that participation in play, physical activity, leisure and sport can be truly transformative, inclusive and fundamentally beneficial. Being active and healthy goes hand in hand with an improved quality of life and wellbeing.

The aim of the consultation is to encourage participation amongst residents, communities, groups and users of the are to gather views and insights on how best improve the space and maximise usage of outdoor space. We are focusing the development in three main workstreams:

  • Inclusive Play – A menu of options will be presented to the local community prioritising the most wanted elements of inclusive play.
  • Soft landscaping – Proposals will include recommendations on the use of micro forests, semi mature trees and hedge infill to provide improvements in biodiversity, buffer noise and reduce water run off.
  • Create space for girls and young women – to provide options on how the area can be improved and co-create the space with the feedback of girls and young women involved in the process.
