Improving access

Entrances to Hawthorn Grove are old and in need of repair or replacement.

Potential improvement
Improve entrances, to make the space more accessible for buggies and users of wheelchairs and mobility scooters. 

Improving the space

The space is currently an empty, grassy cut-through, and we feel that the community could get more value from this shared area.

Potential improvement

Expand the existing allotment, or provide a mixture of traditional allotment plots and a more accessible community garden, with raised beds, or a community orchard. (If we expand the allotments, we would still retain some informal space, and the path between Hawthorn Grove and Bradford Road.)

Looking after the site

Boundary fences need to be repaired, to make this space more attractive and welcoming to visitors.
