It is a condition of planning permission that we provide green public space equal to at least 50% of the original park throughout the redevelopment. To fulfil this commitment we need to provide a new temporary park before starting building work on the current park.
The construction of the new temporary park will commence following completion of the demolition of Lionel House and the adjacent car park, and the removal of the Catalyst annex office and Ardmore Constructions office compound on Wornington Road. A new green area will be laid out and existing playground equipment will be relocated. In the summer further changes will be made to the green space once Wheatstone and Telford Houses are demolished and we will provide further updates in Here & Now.
