What we do: Formulation ....

Some of the ideas we receive from the public have to be rejected as being too impracticable or too costly to maintain but many of the early suggestions were formulated in our ‘Proposals for the Regeneration of Eastfield Park’ produced in August 2008 and submitted to NBC the same year.

Following further consultations in 2012 we requested the Borough Council to make improvements to the Park's drainage. This suggestion was turned down on the grounds that there would not be sufficient public benefit for the cost involved.

The Proposals were well received but never fully accepted by NBC. Some of our ideas have been taken up and implemented; others are still waiting consideration.

Each year we produce 'action plans' describing what we hope to achieve in the month ahead. We don't always reach our targets but we do feel that we are making progress and that the Park is steadily improving.

Proposals cover
Booth Lane Entrance

The entrances to the Park were improved, at our request, in 2011 and information boards and signs pointing to the Park from local roads were erected. These should increase the number of people using the Park. (Our research in 2008 had showed that some local residents were not even aware of the Park's existence.)

New path under construction (comp)

We therefore turned to the second most popular suggestion from the 2012 consultation: an all-weather cross-park pathway from Eastfield to Lakeview. We are pleased to say that, this time, the Council responded positively to our request and work on the new pathway commenced in February, 2014.
