Position in organisation
What does your organisation do?
To obtain or acquire access to the waste land at the corner of Saxon Road and Warminster Road in St. Werburghs and turn it into a community green space.
The green space would benefit the whole community by turning a piece of waste ground, into something that can be shared. Currently the land is owned by a company planning to put storage containers on the land. The land has been derelict on and off for about 20 years.
Following a community consultation we gathered a wealth of ideas for creating a green space. These ideas can be combined or considered for single use.
Ideas included encouraging regeneration of the natural habitat as a nature reserve (there are Great Crested Newts which are a protected species and other wildlife already on the land), creating a sculpture park, creating a woodland, keeping bees and the creation of a play space.
