The Chumleigh Gardens area of Burgess Park will undergo a transformation as part of an ambitious landscaping scheme.
Southwark Council has commissioned Groundwork London to improve the overall area around the gardens and to create a new under 5’s play area. There are also plans for a new café for the park.
Groundwork conducted extensive consultation with local people and stakeholders during autumn 2007 and April 2008. Feedback from both consultations has helped us develop the design. The final design is now on display at the Chumleigh Gardens Café, Burgess Park or you can download it here [PDF : 385KB]
The planning application for the Chumleigh scheme was submitted in early June. Our landscape scheme went to the full planning committee in late July and has been successful. Works on the landscape scheme are now going out to tender. The project is due for completion in spring 2009.
The Chumleigh area improvements are funded by Southwark Council and Aylesbury NDC.
