Dear CLG members
Following on from my previous email please see below details of the upcoming CLG Focus Session to discuss the park and landscaping and also community benefits / facilities
Date: Thursday 12th December
Time: Registration 6.15pm
Prompt start 6.30pm – 9pm
Venue: Kobi Nazrul Centre, 30 Hanbury Street, E1 6QR
Park and landscaping
We are pleased to announce that landscape architects have now been appointed for the park and landscaping. Lead by Spacehub, this is a collaborative team of local groups including:
Chris Dyson Architects
Kinnear Landscape Architects
At the upcoming Focus Session we would like the CLG to meet with the landscape team, as a first point of call before the landscape proposals are progressed in detail. This ‘workshop style’ event will aim to prioritise the many aspirations for the park, and begin to look in more detail at the challenges and opportunities that need to be considered.
Community benefits / facilities
Community benefits span a wide range of topics ranging from the park, community facilities, temporary use, affordable housing, jobs and training and wider contributions. This will be an introductory session, looking at community benefits / facilities in the context of the park and wider area.
This session is aimed towards those with a particular interest in the park and/or community facilities at The Goodsyard. There will be a short general project update at the beginning, however this session is dedicated to the park and community benefits / facilities which have not yet had chance to be discussed in detail in the wider masterplan events.
As such, if you have not done so already, please click here <http://thegoodsyardlondon.co.uk/about/the-proposals> to see the Draft Masterplan prior to the meeting.
As always, please let us know if you would like to attend so we can ensure there is enough space and cater accordingly. Many thanks to those who have confirmed already.
With warmest regards,
