Cheltenham Borough Council and Friends of Pittville have commissioned Illman Young Landscape Design to undertake a study of two key areas in the park: (a) the area in front of the Pump Room and (b) the Upper Lake. The study identifies current issues and proposes a range of works which could be carried out. Some of these could be carried out by our Green Space Volunteers, while others will require substantial fundraising.
Around 90 people looked at the plans when we set up a stall in the park on Sunday 2 September. The verbal comments were almost all in favour, though one visitor was worried that too many trees might be felled and that wildlife might suffer. A number of suggestions were made and these will be forwarded to the borough council.
You can download the full study report here. Although this is not a formal consultation, your views are welcome and will be passed on.
