Bernie Spain Gardens North upgrade – opportunity to comment on proposals

Bernie Spain Gardens north

During 2016 we undertook consultation about our aspirations to improve the gardens. Based on this, a design brief to create a public open green space of high quality and
sustainability was created and in 2017 a landscape design competition was launched for the north part of the gardens. Improvements to the planting in the south part of the
gardens is already underway.

Five competition entrants have been shortlisted: (Bradley-Hole Schoenaich Landscape; J & L Gibbons; Kinnear Landscape Architects; Reynolds Design; and West 8).
Their outline proposals are now ready for further consultation.
