Views sought for Greenwich Park Project
Greenwich residents and visitors to Greenwich Park are being asked for views on a major project to transform Greenwich Park.
Find out more about proposals to protect and enhance the Royal Park for future generations at one of a series of public consultaions. The meetings will also provide an opportunity for people to share their views on the proposed plans and help secure and shape a multi-million-pound investment in the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site
Greenwich Park’s unique landscape and heritage are under pressure from increasing visitor footfall, new tree pests and diseases and erosion of the most popular areas of the park, all of which are putting a strain on the park’s infrastructure, facilities and natural environment.
“Greenwich Park Revealed” is a major multi-million-pound project led by The Royal Parks – the charity which manages Greenwich Park – which will ensure that the park is sustainably fit for future generations.
The proposed plans will improve the park as a visitor destination and manage the physical pressure on the most popular areas of the park. It will better meet the needs and expectations of a growing and diverse local population, protect and improve biodiversity, and restore the historic integrity of the park’s design.
The project will also create new opportunities for local residents, with a proposed new Learning Centre offering a programme of activities, as well as through volunteering and apprenticeships.
Four public consultations will be held near Greenwich Park’s bandstand. These will take place on Thursday 21st and Sunday 24th February, and Thursday 11th and Sunday 14thApril, 10am-4pm to seek local residents’ input on various aspects of the project, to help shape the park’s future.
