Mulberry Park consultation now live

Bath Bridge was recently asked by Curo, the largest social landlord in B&NES, and one of the largest rural landlords in the country, to consult and bring together recommendations about arts, culture and leisure provision on the former MoD site at Foxhill, to be called Mulberry Park.

Paper-houses-300x199Overall, it will be the biggest regeneration scheme in the country led by a housing association with 700 new homes and 500 redeveloped homes and new spaces for local people on 19 hectares.

The project has been led by Bath Bridge Director Belinda Kidd, along with project manager Suzanne Heath. Belinda and Suzanne have chaired and lead discussions, workshops and meetings with local residents, artists and potential funders and are working to produce a report with a way forward for getting wide, diverse and high impact involvement in arts and cultural activity, to create a draw to the area with innovative ideas, creating a destination south of the city centre of Bath.

A consultation about the project has just opened, and we encourage all those who live or work in the area to share their views.
