Our Conservation Management Plan

Alexandra Road Park is currently trying to secure funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to rejuvenate the park and has formed a resident and Council partnership to work towards submitting a funding proposal to the HLF in February 2012.

As part of the HLF funding bid requirements a number of documents have to be prepared to support the funding bid. These include; a Conservation Management Plan, Activity/Audience Development Plan, Management and Maintenance Plan and a set of design proposals for improvements to the park.

The Conservation Management Plan sets out to record the parks significance as an important twentieth century landscape set in the context of a Grade 2* listed housing estate, which is considered to be a significant design. It also sets out to record the benefits of the park socially and makes recommendations on its long term care and management.

As the other documents and reports are finalised they will be loaded onto the web pages for downloading.

Friends Morning 3rd November 2012

We manged to get a georgeous Autumn morning to plant our Spring bulbs around the trees in the”meadow” area of Alexandra Road Park .

Just hope the squirrels wont dig them up .

We didn’t mange to have a bat walk this year, sadly . The bats appeared late in the year and then it started raining again !

Still, there seem to be loads of birds in the park even now so lots of time to plan our Spring birdwalk instead.
