Public support ensures Lordship Rec gets £400,000 grant!

Thanks to the fantastic demonstration of public support over the last 3 months, Lordship Rec got the £400,000 grant from the Greater London Authority’s parks vote ‘plebescite’. Here are the voting results for North London.

North London Parks Votes

Lordship Recreation Ground 4711
Dollis Valley Green Walk 4302
Arnos Park 4158
Elthorne Park 2533
Barnard Park 2405
Lincoln’s Inn Fields 2237
Shoreditch Park 1461
Coram’s Fields 1293
Bunhill Fields 842
Broadley Street Gardens 650

An incredible response considering Tottenham is an area where so many people don’t have direct internet access. A big thank you to everyone who helped encourage people to take part. We thank our fellow residents around Haringey for this massive vote of confidence, demonstrating the overwhelming public support for the community-driven plans for the regeneration of Tottenham’s largest green space. All our hard work and patient partnership-working with the Council and others over the last seven years is at last beginning to pay off.

Despite being one of six parks around London shortlisted for a special ‘one-off’ £2m GLA grant, we weren’t successful in getting that. This means that we still have to work hard over the next 6 months to raise additional match funding in order to ensure our regeneration plans can be implemented.

At the Jazz Café, Broadwater Farm Community Centre
1 Adams Road, London N17 6HE

Dear All,
You are invited to attend a special consultation event surrounding the regeneration of Lordship Recreation Ground. We’re seeking your opinions about designs for the new City Farm and Eco-Centre, as well as the revised plans for the park as a whole.

To answer any questions the following will be present on the Friday: the architects and designers, officers from Recreation Services and Neighbourhood Management, reps from Back To Earth (who will be managing the new facilities) and members of the Friends of Lordship Rec. On the Saturday, it will mainly be the reps from Back To Earth and the Friends of Lordship Rec.

There will also be information about the new proposals for the merger of the current Broadwater Farm schools and Children’s Centre by rebuilding them and creating an integrated learning campus at the site.

The event will take place in the Jazz Cafe, where there will also be gorgeous home-cooked meals made by local residents (available to buy at very cheap prices), as well as the Tottenham Food Co-op market stalls (with a range of organic vegetables and other products).

So all in all its going to be an exciting and highly informative event.

Please come along, have you say and help shape the future of your local park!!!
