Current Consultations and Information Sharing
Opened 28 January 2019
Closes 24 March 2019
On behalf of Wandsworth Council, Enable Leisure and Culture has secured £316,500 to fund improvements to Fred Wells Gardens in the near future and we would now like to hear your views.
• £220,000 from Wandsworth Council’s Local Fund in June 2017.
• £80,000 to fund play space enhancements from developers at 12-14 Lombard Street and £16,500 from other planning contributions.
We would like to hear your views on the following:
Group A works: These works are classified as essential to the ongoing safety and / or maintenance of the park and therefore they are not presented as options to choose between. However, we would still like to hear your views on our proposed solutions and make sure we have not missed anything.
Group B works: We would like your help to prioritise these potential improvement works through this consultation. These works, although important, are less fundamental to the overall safety of the park and given that funds are limited it is likely that some of the less popular proposals in this group will not be funded through this round of investment. Therefore, we would like you to rank Group B works according to how important you feel they are to your enjoyment of the park.

Fred Wells Gardens Drop-in Sessions
• Saturday 2 February 2019, 12 to 3pm
On behalf of Wandsworth Council, Enable Leisure and Culture has secured £128,000 from Wandsworth Borough Council’s Local Fund to pay for access improvements to Lavender Gardens in the near future. These funds will go towards:
• Replacement of the steps from Asda supermarket into the Gardens with a gentle sloping footpath making access easier and more accessible
• Refurbishment of the Dorothy Road entrance
• Relocation of the children’s playground gate closer to Dorothy Road
• New native planting
• No change to playground area
We estimate works will take place in 2019 during which time Lavender Gardens will be partially closed. Signs will be erected to offer alternative routes to pedestrians travelling between Dorothy Road and Asda whilst works are taking place.
Opening 11 February 2019
Closes 10 March 2019
During an initial round of consultation in February to March 2018, Enable Leisure and Culture, on behalf of Wandsworth Council, asked for your views on a range of different types of equipment for Chivalry Road Playground. We would now like to hear your views to help decide on the final design for the refurbished playground.
Based on the results of the first round of consultation, three designs have been developed.As Chivalry Road Playground is on Common Land, we have strict guidelines regarding what can be done, which has also informed the three designs.
The style and height of any new equipment will have to be sympathetic to the area and it will have to be appropriate for the age range of intended use. For Chivalry Road Playground the intended age range is for children aged 2 to 16 years.
What happens next?
Once this consultation has closed, all of the feedback will be carefully considered to decide on the final design. The final design will then be submitted for planning approval.
Whilst every attempt will be made to construct the final design to plan, certain elements may have to be altered during the implementation stage due to unforeseen technical or logistical issues.

The consultation will go live on Monday 11 February 2019.
