Launch of the Grange open space project
Leominster Town Council is currently considering options for the improvement of the Grange in Leominster. Red Kite Network Limited, a Shropshire-based landscape architecture, ecology and green space consultancy have been commissioned to support the Council in developing a masterplan for the Site.
The Site incorporates Grange open space, the former cricket ground, the playground and recreation ground, The Priory, the Millennium Green and Pinsley Mead. The brief is to create a destination park, which will include a revitalised play area and recreation space for the local community, whilst also enhancing the wildlife and tourism potential of the Site.
In March-April 2019, public consultation was carried out to determine local residents’ and stakeholders’ views on and priorities for The Grange. The Phase 1 Public Consultation Report sets out the methodology and findings of the public consultation, and is available here.
Based on the findings of the Phase 1 Consultation, alongside the technical site analysis carried out by the design team, Red Kite developed concept proposals for The Grange, which are available here.
The Phase 2 Consultation, carried out in July 2019, gave local residents and stakeholders the opportunity to provide their feedback on the proposals. Red Kite are now collating the results of the Phase 2 Consultation and finalising the proposals based on the feedback we've received. Leominster Town Council will then use the final masterplan and supporting consultation evidence to apply for the funding required to make these plans a reality.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to The Grange Project consultation. We hope that the final proposals will provide an exciting, sustainable and resident-led vision for this much-loved open space in the heart of Leominster.
