Clissold Park consultation reveals desire for sports facilities

Designs for new play and sports facilities were among the issues covered in a consultation on the future of London's Clissold Park and House.

The £8.9m restoration of the park and Grade II*-listed house in Stoke Newington is due to start next year.

A team from landscape architecture practice LDA Design has led the consultation exercises on the proposals for the restoration project. The restoration is being jointly funded by Hackney Council, the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Big Lottery Fund. Specific aspects of the project, including the use of Clissold House, designs for new sports and play facilities, proposals to extend the New River and renovation of animal enclosures were consulted on.

Results from the consultation showed 75 per cent of respondents were in favour of plans for a play and sports area.

Another consultation exploring volunteering opportunities will begin this month.
