Entrances to the space are old and unattractive, and don't provide well for people with additional accessibility needs.
Create more welcoming entrances, designed with access for wheelchairs, mobility scooters, buggies and cyclists in mind, and with modern signage
We are committed to tackling the Ecological Emergency, and we know from public feedback that moves to encourage more wildlife in parks and open spaces would be popular. Currently, most of Entry Hill Open Space is short grass, but through new landscaping, there is potential to provide a richer ecosystem for people and wildlife.
As part of our commitment to planting more trees across the district, we would like to do this with tree planting in locations specifically chosen to support wildlife, while not compromising views, or the open aspect of this park.
Plant new shrubs which are wildlife-friendly, create dedicated areas of longer grass, and potentially create new wildflower meadows
Plant new trees. Are there particular locations that you feel would be suitable (or indeed, unsuitable) to do this?
Currently, Entry Hill Open Space is used mainly by dog walkers and for informal play. There is little to encourage a wider variety of visitors to stop and enjoy the site. Through this consultation, we would like to understand if there is an appetite for informal football facilities.
Install a new set of small goalposts, to encourage informal sports
Install more and improved seating, to make the space more welcoming for family picnics, and people with limited mobility
