Lewisham Council is asking the public how it would like to see the eastern side of Beckenham Place Park redeveloped.  

The early stages consultation, launched in March, will run until April 26.  

People are asked what they enjoy or don’t enjoy about the park, and what they would like to get out of it.  

“The council is consulting on potential changes to the eastern side of Beckenham Place Park – the Common and Summerhouse Fields – and seeking to secure funding to deliver improvements. 

“We are very keen to engage the local and wider community at an early stage in the design process to help understand the qualities and character of this part of the park and what needs to be improved and what positive things can be emphasised. 

“The council will feed all this information into the development of design ideas – which the council will then be seeking views on in a few months’ time,” it said.  

The park, home to several historic buildings and ancient woodland, is the largest green space in the borough and covers 98 hectares.  

It underwent a £6.8 million renovation last year, which included the closure of the public golf course, and opening of a swimming lake, and BMX track.
