CONSENT FOR SPRINGFIELD PARK
Detailed plans for Springfield Park including public realm and roads around the Springfield University Hospital site were given the go ahead last night. The Park Strategy was approved in 2015 and was informed by over 80 hours of direct engagement and 1,900 responses from stakeholders, local community groups, service users and residents. The plans will deliver the first new public park in London since the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park was completed in 2012.
This is an exciting step forward for the delivery of the Springfield masterplan as a part of the wider Estates Modernisation Programme. Cascade will continue to work with South West London & St George's Mental Health NHS Trust and STEP on this major project.
