Public Invite: Forest Hill Town Centre design workshop - vision 2023

Open feedback session from 4-5pm this Saturday 19th July at 6 Havelock Walk (off London Road)

This Saturday the Forest Hill Society and SEE3 are organising a creative workshop for local architects and designers to develop ideas for improving Forest Hill Town Centre. At the end of the workshop there will be an open feedback session for the wider community to come and find out what we have been up to, to hear about the ideas, to ask questions, and input into our emerging town centre vision. 

The workshop is intentionally about looking broadly at the identity of the town centre, key sites (including the station, Perry Vale and Dartmouth Road) and any areas which could benefit from improvement or change.  Over the course of the day the teams attending will help define some of the problems in the town centre and start to develop creative ideas for solving some of them.  This workshop will be focusing on physical issues and spaces rather than building uses and what goes on inside of the buildings. 

The results of the workshop will be published over the summer and we hope they can be used to help support applications for funding to improve the town centre as well as encouraging private developers to make investments and improvements. 

Everyone involved in the day is volunteering their time to help Forest Hill and the town centre and we would really love to have wider support from the community.  If you have any questions please email hilary@fhsoc.com

Please come along between 4pm and 5pm and see what we come up with.
