2005, a major consultation was undertaken with residents from across the
boroughs surrounding the park to find out what people thought of
the Fields and what improvements, if any, they would like to see
to encourage increased use of this fantastic space. From
the results of the consultation, a Feasibility
Report was produced by Ground
Work SE London , a sustainable development trust. There were many
issues addressed in the Report including measures to improve
facilities for young and older people, lighting, security, furniture,
playground improvements, tree and shrub planting etc.
During July 2006, a further public consultation exercise was undertaken in conjunction with Groundwork SE London. The consultation involved a detailed questionnaire delivered to over 1,000 homes surrounding the Fields and a public event on Saturday 15 July 2006. There were examples of different ways improvements and enhancements could be made to the Fields i.e. different kinds of lighting, seating and signage. See Events or more details.
Since then the findings of the consultation have been summarised in a report which can be found in Downloads.
