Cutty Sark Gardens set for £2.4m renovation by 2012

Historic Cutty Sark's public square will be transformed in a £2.4m project to renovate it by 2012.

Greenwich Council is asking for tenders for the contract to redesign the Cutty Sark Gardens.

The tender process is set to end on 6 February and the work is to be carried out as part of Greenwich's bid to improve the borough ahead of the Olympic Games in 2012.

The overhaul of the site is expected to address problems including: under-use; low-quality visitor facilities such as toilets; confusing mixes of materials and styles; and lack of orientation points.

Council deputy leader Peter Brooks said: "Cutty Sark Gardens is a gateway to the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site and all the richness in architecture and history it holds. It deserves a world-class image and the very best facilities."

The initial contract for the landscape design work is to be let as soon as possible, as the winning firm must submit its outline scheme by the end of March. Detailed designs must be created by November, when a planning application will also be submitted.
