Dear Sir or Madam,
St Giles Churchyard consultation
In early 2004, local ward Councillors met with senior Council Officers and local community representatives to discuss the Churchyard. It was agreed that a consultation programme would be led by the Council to examine the use and design of the site.
A few years ago the siteâs infrastructure (a new toddlerâs playground, paths and park furniture) was improved. Recently, concern has been raised that St Gilesâ Churchyard has become under pressure from its wide range of uses. It may be that the Churchyard is not yet living up to its full potential in terms of what it offers to the local community as an open space.
The consultation will aim to investigate the issues described above and any other issues the local community, stakeholders and users may identify. From this we may look to identify some potential improvements to St Gilesâ Churchyard for the future.
We are aware of, and will look to build on the results and outcomes of the St Gilesâ Community planning event that was held in February 2004.
I am writing to individuals who have already shown an interest in St Gilesâ Churchyard and representatives from groups listed on the Council database under relevant headings. A list of groups and contacts invited follows this letter and I would appreciate any additional contacts you would like to suggest.
I would like to invite you to an initial meeting at St Gilesâ in the Fields vestry room on the 8th September 2004, 6.30 â 8.00 pm.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like to discuss the project or would like any more information.
