Taking the right path at Derriford Community Park

Plymouth

Plymouth City Council is seeking feedback on plans for a new green space.

A series of consultation events have been arranged to display on proposals for the foot and cycle path network through the new Derriford Community Park.

The paths will connect Crownhill, Eggbuckland, Estover, Leigham and the new Seaton neighbourhood with high quality routes for access through the Forder and Bircham valleys.

The council is hosting a number of consultation events through January and welcomes all members of the public to come and have their say on the designs.

Councillor Patrick Nicholson, deputy leader and Cabinet member for Strategic Transport, Housing and Planning, said: “The community park is going to be a fantastic asset to the city, with new housing and employment proposed to be built in and around Derriford over the next 20 years.

“I’m really excited to see the plans for the paths and I look forward to hearing the opinions of the people who will use them.”

Plans for the park can be seen and commented on online here – plymouth.consult.limehouse.co.uk – until Monday 29 January.

Meanwhile, public consultation events will also be held at the date, time and venues below:

  • Thursday 11 January, from 3pm to 4.30pm at Widey Court Primary School
  • Monday 15 January, from 3pm to 6pm at St Matthews Primary School
  • Wednesday 17 January, from 4.30pm to 7.30pm at Crownhill Methodist Church
  • Saturday 20 January, from 10am to 12pm at Poole Farm
  • Thursday 25 January, from 2pm to 5pm at Estover Community Library

Derriford Community Park will eventually become high quality multi-functional green space that provides a new city-wide destination.

Plymouth City Council has teamed up with Devon Wildlife Trust, the Environment Agency and South West Water among others to make the park a ‘Local Nature Partnership Hub’ valuing food, wildlife, learning and volunteering.

Alongside the plans for foot and cycle paths is a proposed new play space, as well as improved access to Poole Farm, where the Old Dairy is already open to Animal Management students studying with Duchy College.
