As noted in the last update, construction of the first of the site-wide public open spaces will begin soon and it will include a pathway to enable safe passage to the retail units on Essex Regiment Way.
As a result of a recent discussion with the key stakeholders responsible, this now includes the work up of plans for lighting to facilitate safer passage during hours of darkness.
The first public open space is highlighted on the image below:
We have been advised that the open space will include facilities for younger children, benches and walkways and it will eventually form part of a much bigger site-wide linked parkland space for the Channels community.
As construction time nears, the designers and landowner are keen to engage with the community in further developing the vision for this first open space. We have links with experts that can assist with advising on how the space can be developed for ‘all inclusive’ use however it is obviously of paramount importance to gather views from residents.
This is your chance as residents to get involved and help shape the vision of the community space being developed. We are very fortunate that the designers and the landowner are willing to involve us so we need to make the most of the opportunity!
