Readers will know that I chair the Friends of the Port Sunlight River Park, which recently held a consultation meeting for their plans for a visitor centre at the park.
The architect came along to the meeting to discuss the plans for the building and there were opportunities to ask him questions about the design plans.
The Port Sunlight River Park was also recently highly commended at an awards ceremony in Liverpool in the regeneration category which was exciting and I am sure the visitor centre will add to the park’s appeal and its tourism offer. The park’s nomination was for a Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyor’s award.
This week the proposals for the visitor centre will be on display in the Bromborough Pool Garden centre all week if you wish to view them. At the moment the project is in its early stages and the consultation period is currently happening.
If you use the park then it would be great to have your feedback and if you are unable to go to the Garden Centre to view the plans a copy can be emailed to you.
Just phone 0151 645 6590 and it can be arranged for a copy to be emailed to you or pop into my office where we have a paper copy of the design. I am very keen for the whole park to be as accessible for disabled people as possible and this has been a priority so I passed these views on to the architect at the meeting.
As the plans move forward there will be more information to share so please do keep in contact is it is something you want updating on as a regular user of the park or a nearby resident. I will be meeting with the Land Trust who are responsible for the site to continue to discuss the plans.
