Burgess Park Tiny Forest proposal

Closed 21 Feb 2024

Opened 26 Jan 2024


As a local authority, we're committed to addressing the Climate and Ecological Emergency.

One of the ways which we are doing this is by planting trees throughout our borough. We are proposing the creation of a Tiny Forest in Burgess Park as a means to address rising temperatures, storing carbon, creating habitats and increasing valuable green spaces which can be used by the community. 

Tell us what you think?

We're keen to know what you think about the tiny forest proposal at the park.  

We’re especially keen to hear from people who live and or work in the wards of Camberwell Green, Faraday, North Walworth, Old Kent Road, Peckham, and St Giles. We would also like to hear from anyone else who has an interest in Burgess Park.

Your views are important as they will help the council decide whether the proposal to create a 'Tiny Forest' at Burgess Park, should or should not go ahead.  

Our parks and leisure team at Southwark Council looks forward to hearing from you by the closing date of 21 February 2024.

Why your views matter



What happens next

The views gathered from this survey will dictate if, and how, we go ahead with the proposed planting.
