Groundwork Kent & Medway have organised a meeting to discuss the development of Park Place. This is the small triangle of green space at the side of the very busy road next to the firestation.
The meeting will take place on Monday 23rd May, 6.30pm at St John's Community Centre.
The Marks & Spencer is funding the project through it's environmental project, Plan A.
They have a section on the Plan A website for Park Place:
This is part of a national gallery of projects. You can upload pictures of the site to their website. Or directly to their Flickr Group with the tag ParkPlace:
Here's their picture of Park Place:
Do you think this site is a good site in the whole of Margate for this funding?
We believe funding for Park Place is thought to be £30k. The idea is a 'sensory garden with mosaics'.
If you would like to know how to create a sensory garden at the side of a busy road, do go along to the meeting. Also to find out how the £30k budget is to be spent.
Previously, the Park Place site (13 Park Place) had a number of planning applications from Thanet District Council to build a house on it.
Where is Park Place?
I think the M&S Project is the upper triangle not both. But await further confirmation.
