Worcester Park to get £800,000 revamp

An £800,000 revamp of Worcester Park is due to begin in March next year.

The revamp includes ‘green havens’ along the high street.

A second round of public consultation from October 8 to 21 will give people a chance to offer their opinions on the proposals.

Designers have developed ideas by using suggestions offered in the first consultation in July, when 12,000 leaflets were distributed and a series of events invited people to have their say.

Councillor Kirsty Jerome, chairman of the project board for the Outer London Fund which is overseeing the scheme, said: "The first consultation was enormously valuable in really understanding what residents and businesses want to see in terms of improvement to the area.

"I hope that as many people as possible will come forward to offer their ideas again and ensure that this important scheme delivers a real boost to the community."

The new plans aim to encourage visitors to walk, cycle or use public transport and create more attractive spaces for the community to enjoy.

By "visitors" am I to assume that this scheme is aimed at the congregation of the mosque? Bit taken aback by this news as it is the first I have heard of this project. That's probably because I am an RBK resident of WP and my views count for nothing. Can't help but agree with Tubby Jim though. The best idea would have been to improve WP when the waterworks project was underway. Hey, just a minute though! I thought we had a beautification project, hanging baskets and flower tubs, but LBS couldn't afford the maintenance so took them all away. Still it will be pleasant watching the weeds growing when I'm stuck in the traffic. Can't help feeling this is just papering over the infrastructure cracks. By the way, who's paying for this scheme?

No do not assume. Just your bias and pathetic prejudice coming through
