Norbury Park Has Been Chosen For Detailed Study
The Council has chosen Norbury Park as one of six to have a master planning exercise to review it as a venue for a variety of cultural offers, community engagement and involvement opportunities, opportunities for whole park or targeted facility asset transfer, proposals for development, repair or restoration, a long-term management strategy , a sustainable maintenance plan, and support for external funding opportunities. A consultant will be appointed at the beginning of February 2017.
The inclusion of Norbury Park must be in recognition of the campaigning against the proposed BMX track and the work carried out by the Friends of Norbury Park on improving it.
