Have Your Say on the Masterplan for Consort Park and Dr Harold Moody Park

Closes 18 Apr 2021

Opened 4 Mar 2021

Overview

Consort Park and Dr Harold Moody Park playground in Peckham are in poor condition and need investment. With your help, a Masterplan for the parks will be created and used to seek funding to build it. We expect to deliver the improvements in phases, depending on funding availability.

We carried out an initial consultation in early 2020, and used the results (summarised below) to create two design options. You can view the initial consultation feedback here.

Summary of initial consultation feedback

The majority of consultees stated that the priority for Consort Park is to be more wildlife friendly, and the new design will protect and enhance nature.

Many consultees mentioned the worn play equipment and that children use their bikes in the park. The new design suggests improving the play area at Dr Harold Moody Park and the possibility of a designated area for skate, scooter and bike play.

  • Almost half of consultees requested increasing the number of benches and picnic tables, and this has been included
  • Consultees stated that they like the peace and quiet of Consort Park compared to the busier Dr Harold Moody Park. The new design for Consort Park includes enhanced nature, whereas Dr Harold Moody Park has more focus on play and sport
  • Only half of consultees feel Consort Park is safe. We aim to reduce opportunities for anti-social behaviour. Reducing and reshaping the grassy hills will increase views
  • Only a few consultees found Consort Park attractive. The Masterplan will help create an attractive park with high quality materials and features. A new path will provide access to the back of the park for people including those with mobility disabilities
  • Some consultees suggested joining Consort Park and Dr Harold Moody Park together, to make one park. This is a great idea, and the options show different ways of improving the link between the parks, making Sturdy Road safer to cross, and possibly increasing green space.
