Oakbourne Road Open Space – undervalued

Investment opportunity to improve the space
Well used site -mainly dog walking, passing through
Most significant space in Brentry therefore key investment site.
More opportunities could be explored for informal recreation space utilising fledgling woodland at centre (huge part of the site which is mostly inaccessible)
Propose new CPG facility here
Public Right of Way through site
Wildlife Network Site

Crow Lane Open Space / Henbury Conservation Area / Tormarton Crescent Housing and Open Space- undervalued

– Investment opportunity to improve the space
Area Green Space Plan Assessment of this site states:
“Local residents feel passionate that Crow Lane Open space is at the heart of their community – however it’s “no go” reputation and associated anti-social behaviour at certain times of the day and evening, it’s size and the access to all of the space makes it difficult for this sense of ownership to be expressed.”
Crow Lane Open Space is being looked at separately by Masterplanners employed by the City Council. Proposals for these sites will be presented during a public consultation in September. A session was held to discuss these sites in May – these views have been fed back through into the work considered by the masterplanners.
