ntroduction by Anthony Scully.

Anthony gave a brief background as to why the Friends of Home Park (FOHP) was formed. Its aim is to work with local services/agencies to make improvements to  Home Park.  With better provisions in the park and with the Adventure Playground, it is envisaged that the anti-social behaviour by some local youth will be addressed and alleviated in the local area.

Purpose of the meeting: to decide on which option to spend the £20,000 which was granted by The London Borough of Lewisham’s Regeneration Team to Friends of Home Park to make improvements to the Park. Votes to be counted for the 3 options:-

  2. Improving the Children’s Play Area
  3. Improving Interaction between the Park and the Library.

Most votes were given for Option 1: Outdoor Gym and Table-tennis.

WHAT HAPPENS NOW?

Glendales and FOHP will explore potential providers for the Outdoor Gym.

Fiona Alleyne (Lewisham Parks) advised that £20K is unlikely to provide sufficient enough funds for a good outdoor gym. Additional funding to be explored. Adidas and Sainsburys may provide grants for outdoor spaces. Lewisham Parks and FOHP to explore opportunities for fund raising.

14/11/09, Bellingham Assembly meeting will discuss the 60K grants available.

It was proposed that as a contingency plan, that also explore improvements to the children’s play area should £20K not be enough for the outdoor gym.

Maintenance of the equipment: Glendales have committed to maintaining the equipment.

Councillor Alan Hall advised that the Sports Development Council has a funding body called “SeeSpan” which could be approached for possible bids. Macdonalds also sponsors local football clubs.

Cllr Hall also expressed enthusiasm that FOHP completes a bid for the outdoor classroom for Home Park.

QUESTIONS AND GENERAL DISCUSSION:

Adventure Playground in Home park:

Darna Sepaul (AP) updated the meeting re the re-building works on the AP. Rebuilding started 3-4 weeks ago. IT is expected that the work on the Ap will be completed by April 2010 and definitely by Summer 2010.

Plans of the re-build are available on the Home Park web Blog.

The Adventure Playground attracts up to 45 children/young people (aged 5-19) every day. Up to 170 children and young people attended the AP this summer. Discussions were held with the children about the 3 options fr Home Park; they expressed most interest for the outdoor gym.

Teach Sport – Very successful range of activities were run by the AP and TeachSport. Levels of anti-social behaviour over the summer in the local area were down significantly.

Security of the Park:

PC White of Bellingham SNT advised that the anti-social problems tend to be from youths aged between 13-17 and from street drinkers.

SNT PCSOs patrol in and around the park.

Street Drinkers and older children bullying younger children:

This was raised as a concern as there have been incidents whereby younger children have felt intimidated by older children. On a general note, concern expressed regarding the presence of street drinkers in the area and ways of limiting this. Lewisham Regeneration Team and the SNT answered that there would be an increawed presence of Glendales and the Safer Neighbourhood Team and increase controls in the area.

Lighting and locking the gates to be a consideration to help promote safety of the park. It is recognized however that Home Park is heavily used as a pedestrian thoroughfare to and fro the high street.

Sydenham Arts Festival:

Film was screened in Home Park which was a very successful event.  However to make this a regular event, would require on-going pre-planning, organization, fund raising and costings.

Football Pitches:

Local resident, Barry Langridge, expressed interest for regular organised football matches in Home Park. Previously there has been organised tournaments which increased the positive use of Home Park for sporting activities and raised its profile in Lewisham. Football matches have ended as the pitches are not marked and facilities are not available. The changing room is in a state of disrepair and will require substantial funds to re-furbish it.

Glendales charge £45 per match. At a previous meeting, Glendales agreed to mark out football pitches. Goal posts? (see action plan).

Community gardens:

AP and Haseltine School have expressed their interest in developing a Community Garden in the old “mulch area” to grow orchards, a vegetable garden and plants.

FOHP (Shelly) to get the views of local residents in Fairlawn Park and Fairview Close, whose gardens back on to this area.

Signposting: Signs for Home Park to be considered.

Café: At previous FOHP meetings, there was discussion about FOHP exploring  the possibility of a mobile café/ice cream van located occasionally in the park.

DECISIONS / ACTION PLAN:

  1. FOHP, Glendales, Lewisham Parks (Fiona) to explore further funding to boost the £20K already secured for this..

 

  1. Anthony to organize a “walk and talk” with Glendales and Parks to discuss on where the Outdoor gym should be sited.

 

  1. Anthony of FOHP to make a bid to the Bellingham Assembly for an “outdoor classroom”. Anthony to contact Lewisham Homes and Hyde Housing. Anthony and Lee (and possiblby Haseltine Primary School) will make a presentation for this bid at the Bellingham Assembly on 14/11/09.

 

  1. Films at Home park – volunteers needed to explore this further. (Jonathan Kaufman of the Kirkdale Bookshop can advise on costings to hold film events. Fiona Alleyne will find out funding opportunities for £5K for running films in Home park in Summer 2010.

 

  1. Football Pitch markings: Potential mobile football goal posts – the AP may have the capacity to store them. Darren Budden and Fiona will discuss further.   Spot funds to be explored. Discuss football markings and goal posts at next FOHP meeting.

 

  1. Tarmac area: FOHP and Fiona to discuss long term and short term plans.

 

  1. Bellingham and Sydenham SNT will continue to advise FOHP and Glendales on security and safety issues.

 

  1. FOHP to research opportunities regarding community funding organizations for potential funders for Home Park.

 

  1. Maria Roberts will pass on Dave King’s details to FOHP. Dave King runs activities for young people funded by Millwall Football club.

 

  1. FOHP to meet to formulate a Constitution.

 

  1. Date of next meeting: TBA. (estimated sometime in February/March  2010)

Dear Mr Scully

Thank you for your email of 15th September.

The Council is considering a Local Safety Scheme for Sydenham Road (Mayow Road – Porthcawe Road). We hope to be able to include works at the junction with Fairlawn Road and in the vicinity of the school in the scheme. This may involve the construction of a raised entry treatment in Fairlawn Park, at the junction. We would not introduce rumble strips as they can cause intrusive noise for residents.

However implementation of the scheme has had to be delayed for some time until the gas mains works in Sydenham Road have been completed. This, unfortunately, is likely to take at least eighteen months. I am afraid that we are unable to send a representative to your meeting on 30th September.

Once the gas works are complete we will inform residents of the details of the scheme and invite comment. There won’t be consultation as such because the scheme is being done for road safety reasons and the engineering measures chosen will be selected to reduce accidents at the junction.

I hope this is helpful.

Yours sincerely

Malcolm Smith

Executive Director for Regeneration

Quoting “Hyde, Martin” <Martin.Hyde@lewisham.gov.uk>:
Dear Anthony {FPRA}
I am, as you know, very keen to work with the group to develop an overall master plan for Home Park, one that can be costed in order that we can bid for the necessary funding.  It would be useful if you could consider the options to open up the frontage of Home park, to consider additional play facilities, the former leaf compound space and the relationship between the park and the adventure playground. I have also contacted Mike Westcar in Estate management to see what progress there is regarding the transfer of the former depot space to Our Lady & St Phillip Neri School.
On the issue of funding we have nominated Home park for the Mayor of London’s Priority Parks fund.  We have submitted three nominations for Lewisham and should Home Park be selected it will go through to a public voting stage where the community can vote for their park.  I will keep you informed.
I have also bid, on your behalf for play builder funding for Home park d this bid be successful this will provide natural style play facilities for 8s – 13s age group.  The funding will be available in 2009/10 and 2010/11 and should be in the region of £50k.

.With kind regards

Dear Mr Scully

Thank you for your email.

According to our records there are still a few old low pressure sodium lanterns (orange light) in Fairlawn Park therefore we will arrange to have these upgraded to modern high pressure sodium lanterns (white light) which will improve the lighting levels in this road.

I am please to inform you that Lewisham’s street lighting (in conjunction with Croydon Street Lighting) are progressing towards a Private Finance Initiative (PFI) in late 2009.

Under the PFI, lighting in the majority of roads throughout the borough will be redesigned and have modern high pressure sodium lanterns (white light).  This light enables the eye to distinguish colours and shapes far more easily than the old style orange light and has proved to be a significant factor in the reduction of crime and accident levels.

If you would like to find out further information regarding the PFI, this can be found on our website at http://www.lewisham.gov.uk/TransportAndStreets/RoadsAndPavements/CroydonAndLewishamOutlineBusinessCases.htm

A detailed structural condition survey of all roads within the borough was carried out in 2006.  This information along with a number of other factors was used to develop our current resurfacing programme.  Unfortunately, Fairlawn Park did not rate as highly as those roads which have been included on this list.  However, I have asked our highway inspector to carry out a safety inspection of Fairlawn Park and to arrange for any necessary repairs to be carried out.

With regards to traffic calming, the Council is in the initial stages of considering a local safety scheme for Sydenham Road (Mayow Road – Porthcawe Road). We hope to be able to include works at the junction with Fairlawn Road and in the vicinity of the school in the scheme.

I hope the above is helpful.  However if you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Quoting “Hyde, Martin” <Martin.Hyde@lewisham.gov.uk>:


Dear Anthony {FPRA}


I am, as you know, very keen to work with the group to develop an overall master plan for Home Park, one that can be costed in order that we can bid for the necessary funding.  It would be useful if you could consider the options to open up the frontage of Home park, to consider additional play facilities, the former leaf compound space and the relationship between the park and the adventure playground. I have also contacted Mike Westcar in Estate management to see what progress there is regarding the transfer of the former depot space to Our Lady & St Phillip Neri School.


On the issue of funding we have nominated Home park for the Mayor of London’s Priority Parks fund.  We have submitted three nominations for Lewisham and should Home Park be selected it will go through to a public voting stage where the community can vote for their park.  I will keep you informed.


I have also bid, on your behalf for play builder funding for Home park d this bid be successful this will provide natural style play facilities for 8s – 13s age group.  The funding will be available in 2009/10 and 2010/11 and should be in the region of £50k.

.With kind regards

Martin
