Following a round of community workshops last month, the South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust will be hosting a series of public exhibitions this week to invite local residents to input into plans for Springfield Park.
The development of a 32 acre public park is one element of the Springfield Regeneration Programme, which also includes plans to create a new mental health centre, 839 new homes, a new primary school and a purpose built care home for older people. A masterplan to regenerate the Springfield Hospital site was approved by Wandsworth Council in 2012. (Further information is available here: www.swlstg-tr.nhs.uk/about-us/estates-modernisation)
The Trust is due to present a Park Strategy to Wandsworth Council in September 2015 that sets out plans for the park and they are keen to work with local residents, businesses and community groups to identify options for the park.
The public exhibitions will be taking place at the Springfield Hospital (the restaurant, Newton Building, 61 Glenburnie Road, SW17 7DJ) on the following dates:
Information will also be displayed at a number of sites in Earlsfield (locations to be confirmed).
