New signs point to a better future

Five blue footpath signs have now been erected pointing to the five park entrances that were improved towards the end of 2011.

This means that the first two of FoEP's proposals for the regeneration of Eastfield Park, presented to NBC in 2008, have now been achieved. (Well, almost achieved, since we also requested a sign pointing to the park from the junction of Grange Road, Greenfield Avenue and Broadmead Avenue!)

EP Sign

The good news is that further funding is available for Eastfield Park in the coming financial year! However, the third of the proposals (providing 'a safe and secure car park that does not detract from the natural beauty of the park') is now much more controversial that it seemed when proposed in 2008.

As explained at FoEP's recent AGM, there is a need to revise the 2008 ideas in the light of what has already been achieved, our increased knowledge of the park and changed cicumstances relating to other developments in the area. This is why the FoEP has launched a public consultation through this website and also using paper questionnaires for those who don't use computers.

The consultation will continue until the end of September but residents who want to influence developments in the coming financial year should let us have their views by the end of February (or very soon after) as we need to let NBC know our preferences sometime during March.

Please note that this consultation is quite separate from the consultation being carried out concerning improvements to Eastfield Ward as a whole (though FoEP is involved in that as well). (See 'previous news' for more info. on that.)
