APPENDIX 2 Ashley, Easton and Lawrence Hill Neighbourhood Partnership Summary of Consultation summary from Neighbourhood Forums and distributed questionnaire 2011

Site and/or comment

Action

Further support for introducing a wheels park under the M32.

Noted

Happy with the report as it reflects the feedback. Victorian railings in Bellevue Road should be mentioned specifically in the entrances and access section. Bannerman Road Park should be made a priority due to lack of space in the area and high population.

Railings at Bellevue Road are included in the site specific priorities, while the play area has been identified as a high priority along with making the full park dog free. Railings could potentially be part of this larger project. Bannerman Road Park has not been identified as a high priority site as other nearby spaces appear to generate more visits. However, the priorities should be viewed as flexible and may change over time. A review of priorities after a year is recommended.

Gullybrook Action Group: Children's play This playground is currently managed by park on our estate which is badly in need Housing and falls outside the remit of this of cleaning up and upgrading. parks investment plan. Therefore it has not been included as part of this list. Play equipment is mostly aimed at small The type of equipment installed will be decided children, so the older ones get bored and at the project management stage and after intimidate the little ones. consultation with the community. Friends Of Netham: Support the exploration of a space/wheels park for young people. Where possible all parks should be accessible for all abilities. Support the creation of wildflower meadows etc. for residents to enjoy.

Noted

Fox Road Park Group: Generally support for the aims. Rather than dog free areas, would prefer to see enforcement of current laws.

Noted, some proposed dog free areas have been removed from consideration due to their unsuitability. However, creation of dog free areas is encouraged by the Parks and Green Space Strategy and has been keenly requested by some communities. It is included as an equalities consideration.

Chatterton's House and garden: There This site is not considered by the Parks and is a plan in place to renovate the garden Green Space Strategy. The Neighbourhood approved by The Thomas Chatterton Partnership could decide it is a priority. Society. Could not some sum be made available to get this project started? ÂŁ3000 would at least get the garden underway and ready for next summer. If


the garden was renovated and used then it would be easier to progress towards getting the house renovated as a memorial to Chatterton. Montpelier Park Montpelier Park has now been included in the Montpelier Park Group: The project to priority list in relation to supporting the regenerate Montpelier Park has been regeneration project. ignored. More weight should be given to this in the prioritisation process. Planning permission has been awarded for this, after extensive community consultation. The skateable space is the third phase of work in Montpelier Park and is currently unfunded (requires ÂŁ30-40k). The spectator seating space is the fourth phase of work in Montpelier Park and is currently unfunded (requires ÂŁ35-45k). Mina Road Park Mina Road Park Group: Opposes link between Mina Road Park and Ashley Street Park and upgrading footpaths, both are unnecessary. Mina Road Park needs to be expanded in size.

Both priorities for Mina Road Park have been removed. Expansion to Mina Road Park currently sits outside the scope of the investment priorities, however, the principle is supported in the Area Green Space Plan (AGSP) Ideas and Options Paper and is reflected in the key priority of working towards increasing the amount of open space in the area.

St Werburghs Park St Werburghs Park has been removed from Mina Road Park Group: St Werburghs the priority list in relation to making the space Park should not be made dog free as site dog free is in high demand for dog walking. Owen Square Requires more seating. Quite a few people have asked to have a ping pong table fixed in place

Are reflected within the priorities.

Fox Park Add an acoustic barrier to reduce the noise of the motorway. Residents Of Fox Road: Sex Workers, sex litter, Punters Hanging around. Late at night. Drug Dealing/ unsafe needles and anti social behaviour i.e. fighting, drinkers. Unsightly unkempt open spaces, General Rubbish every where and Dog Fouling. Huge Trees never maintained, unsightly Vegetation unclean Car Parks. Fox Road Park Group: Support all aims, but park suffers Anti-Social Behaviour. Sex workers, sex and drug litter, littering.

Comments have been incorporated into the priority list where possible, however car parks in the area do not fall within the remit of the Parks and Green Space strategy. Any new planting scheme will be carefully drawn up in consultation with the community.


created, should use native species. Spark Evans Park Noted. Friends Of Netham: The notion of a premium football venue would conflict with the nearby eight football pitches and changing rooms available at the Netham, which at the moment is not fully utilized. This park is a badly needed lung in a mainly low-level industrial area heavy with lorries and cars. We would image Bristol Dogs Home would miss the facility for walking their dogs. Marsh Lane Friends Of Netham: Very important for wildlife and has a function as a wildlife corridor.

Noted.

Riverside Park Fox Road Park Group: Clear unwanted invasive species. No need for play equipment.

Any new planting scheme will be carefully drawn up in consultation with the community. It is not intended to introduce formal play equipment in the space, as outlined in the AGSP, but to provide some activities for young people within the NP, such as a logs to climb/sit on or activities for bicycles. This was highlighted as an important space for young people on both the AGSP consultation and the community consultation run by Love Easton.

Riverside Park - Summary of all investment comments Comment Of key importance is improving safety and security Facilities and enhancements for young people Needs to be carefully considered with local people Improve wildlife and bring more wildlife to the M32 corridor Cycle paths need to be separate from walking and sitting A longer term solution to improving the underpasses at junction 3 needs to be part of an overall strategy for this area and this should be regarded as a high priority. Noise from the motorway should be reduced Highlight historical importance of the area (River Frome, the mills etc) Working with local people as part of the Peel Street community garden project

Mina Road Park and Ashley Street Park – Summary of all investment comments Site name Mina Road Park and Ashley Street Park

Comment Keep Ashley Street Park as green space Ashley Street Park play needs to be upgraded due to increasing child population Entrance from Jubilee Road is not needed as there is an entrance close by would increase noise and disturbance No lake - costly and will cause safety issues (drowning) Toilets are very important to park users Hold community events Generally making parks more attractive and well maintained will encourage visitors Understand desire to remove play from Ashley Street, but should remain as open space Creating entrance from Jubilee Road is impractical due to ground level changes Provide seating in Ashley Street Park Entrances and gates should be child proof, smaller children should not be able to open them (safety?) Removing Ashley Street Park is idiotic Changing Mina Road Park would be a waste of money as no one wants it Kickabout area is too small - should be swapped with the play area Ashley Street should provide natural play Band stand for live music Use some of Brooks site to link parks together Turn 'island' on development site side of park into wildflower meadow Concrete bouldering wall Ping-pong table We don't want anything grand
