Burgess Park Sports Centre development

Still time to comment on the plans for Cobourg Road and the Sports Centre development

Southwark Council are proposing a major redevelopment of the Community Sports Centre on Cobourg Road. Friends of Burgess Park are concerned that the plan will fence off more of the park, reduce accessibility, cut down mature trees, increase pedestrian/cyclist conflict and cause parking problems.  Read the Friends of Burgess Park submission.

The proposal

Have a look at the Southwark proposal for the Community Sports area and send your comments to parks@southwark.gov.uk The closing date for the consultation is Sunday, 7 August.
