Liskerrett Garden Project gets the go-ahead
Expressions of Interest sought from landscape contractors.
After successfully obtaining a grant from the Community Spaces programme (part of the Big Lottery and supported by Groundwork UK), the redevelopment of Liskerrett’s garden area moved a huge step closer last week. Work can commence on the scheme originally drawn up in 2009 by Cornwall Environmental Consultants’ landscape architecture team after an extensive consultation process with local people and groups.
The design is aimed at providing opportunities for adults, children and young people to make use of and enjoy Liskerrett’s garden area for recreation and to make it accessible to all. It will also provide an additional resource for the wide range of existing groups and organisations that use the community centre on a regular basis. It is anticipated that it will also attract and encourage new groups to use the facilities created.
Jenny Foster from the Liskerrett Community Centre said ‘We are very excited to think that these plans can now be realised and work will start very soon.’
Tom Murray, Landscape Architect for CEC said ‘We look forward to getting this accessible and exciting landscape design built and open for use by the community.’
It is hoped that the majority of the construction work will take place over the summer months.
Expressions of Interest should be submitted by the end of 18/05/2011 and details of what is required and how to submit is available to download here – Liskerrett Community Centre – EoI Final.
