Launch of the Grange open space project
Have your say on the future of the Grange
Leominster Town Council is currently considering options for the improvement of the Grange in Leominster. Red Kite Network Limited, a Shropshire-based landscape architecture, ecology and green space consultancy have been commissioned to support the Council in developing a masterplan for the Site.
The Site incorporates Grange open space, the former cricket ground, the playground and recreation ground, The Priory, the Millennium Green and Pinsley Mead. The brief is to create a destination park, which will include a revitalised play area and recreation space for the local community, whilst also enhancing the wildlife and tourism potential of the Site.
A comprehensive analysis of the Grange is currently being undertaken, including an appraisal of the Site’s ecology, heritage, landscape character, and flood risk. As part of this initial assessment, local stakeholder groups are being invited to participate in facilitated workshops to help the design team understand the existing use and priorities for the Site.
Phase 1 Consultation
A public survey has been launched to give the local community an opportunity to input into the project. The short survey is intended to help us develop an understanding of existing use of and priorities for the Site.
An online version of the survey can be found here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/T3FXS9Z
Hard copies of the survey are also available from Leominster Town Council, 11 Corn Square, Leominster
The deadline for the survey is Friday 19th April.
The results of our site analysis and the Phase 1 Consultation will inform the development of initial concept design proposals for the Site. These will then be consulted on in a second phase of consultation, details of which will be announced later on in the year.
