Hawthorn Grove is a long, thin strip of amenity land next to allotments which is a useful pedestrian cut-through between Bradford Road and Hawthorn Grove.
Select a topic below, to view photos of this space, read in more detail about its history and character, and the ways in which we would like to improve it.
Entrances to Hawthorn Grove are old and in need of repair or replacement.
Improve entrances, to make the space more accessible for buggies and users of wheelchairs and mobility scooters.
The space is currently an empty, grassy cut-through, and we feel that the community could get more value from this shared area.
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.)
Boundary fences need to be repaired, to make this space more attractive and welcoming to visitors.
Summary of proposals
Our proposed improvements for this green space include:
- Improving entrances and signage
- Repairing boundary fences
- Providing space for new allotment plots, or create a community garden or orchard, while retaining public access as a cut-through
