#4: Public Consultation

Don’t miss your chance to have your say about your park!

The Friends are working in partnership with Southwark Council to devise a
long-term management plan for Belair Park. The process will be owned by the
local community at every stage and you are invited to help to steer it.

Shading of the lake and tree work will be key issues under discussion. Trees
are always an emotive subject. Sometimes, people don’t bother to come to
meetings, but then get upset when things happen that they dislike. Please
come along and bring as many other park users as you can. If we do not hear
your opinions, we cannot take them into account.

7:30 pm to 9.00 pm, Monday Feb. 28, 2011
Belair Community Building (enter from Gallery Rd, SE21)

Experts will assist the discussion by laying out the choices facing us in
realistic terms, and by explaining the implications of different options for
management work in Belair Park. The public will play the key role in deciding
which options they would prefer to see worked up into a plan. The resulting
scheme will balance the needs of different kinds of wildlife, and also
aesthetics and amenity interests.

Speakers will include:
Martin Heath (Chairman, Friends of Belair Park);
Rebecca Towers (Southwark’s Parks & Open Spaces Manager);

Jon Best (Southwark’s Ecology Officer);

Alan Scott & Ben Dewhurst (ecology consultants);

Vinnie O’Connell (New Leaf volunteer worker).
