less than a week left to object

Creating a place for People and Nature

  • SAVING the Trees as a basis for connection with our natural green world and biodiversity
  • SAVING the fine Mural artwork, admired by locals, visitors and worldwide tourists alike
  • BUILDING a community, with attractive venue to meet friends, neighbours, visitors and have chance encounters; to read, relax and refresh
  • Boost health, wellbeing and ease loneliness
  • Children, family and dog friendly environment
  • Carbon and vehicle pollutants mitigation, with local climate control and rain water drainage
  • Attract custom and tourists to businesses at a green destination space in solid building line 
  • Site for local fairs, markets and entertainment
  • Room for a Miyawaki style mini urban forest 
  • Space to build an active travel Mobility Hub
  • Potential for educational installations referring to slave trade recognition, Covid-19 pandemic
  • Opportunity for resident planting and upkeep
  • Assembly point for City Halls (&OFM) patrons
