Norwich City Council and The Friends of Heigham Park are inviting residents to have their say on two new proposals to improve and enhance the park.

The plans include putting in a dedicated dog-free grass area with picnic benches and creating a pond and natural area to enhance biodiversity on the old bowls green.

Andrew Summers, Head of Environmental Services at Norwich City Council, said: “It’s great to see these emerging plans for this much-loved park.

“The new plans are high level at the moment because we want to make sure we are investing in the right things for the local community.

“We’re really keen on hearing from all residents to help us shape these proposals.”

The consultation runs until 5pm on Friday 2 June.

Once the consultation has closed the city council will meet with The Friends group again to discuss the results, explore funding opportunities, and agree proposals to take forward. We will jointly review the final decisions and the results will be shared for members of the public to review on our Get Talking Norwich website.
