Thank you to everyone who attended our open sessions it was great to hear some feedback. We didn’t want to finalise the brief until users of the parks had the opportunity to have an input.
The next stage is to invite Landscape Architects from the East of England to take part in a competition, to draw up a Master Plan for both recreational spaces. Thorpe St Andrew Town Council will award £3000 to the winner and it is expected that considerable publicity will be generated for their work. We are very excited by the prospect of working with Landscape Architects to re-design the recreational facilities. Thorpe St Andrew is continually growing and we want to ensure the parks are inspiring, imaginative and enjoyable places for the whole community. We really hope the Master plans we receive reflect this. The plans are expected to be on display for the public later this year.
As soon as the competition is live we will update the blog with the application details.
