Ilys Booker Drop-in Consultation - Improved services and benefits

Improved services and benefits

The proposal provides the opportunity to create a beautiful state of the art childcare facility and community garden for residents on the estate.

The new facility would encourage children’s development in the early years through indoor and outdoor play while providing a safe, supportive space for new parents on the estate.

The design of the sustainable new pavilion building and garden provides an exciting opportunity that can benefit both users and residents. The pavilion’s design would respond to the needs of the local community in the area and enhance communal areas such as the garden.

A green roof provides a softened view of the building from the homes above and the proposal improves the current bin store and planting provision.

The proposal would bring key improvements to the area such as a new shared garden, improvements to the public realm along Upper Clarendon Walk, and more cycle storage in St. Marks Close.
