Dear Friend of Central Park Plymouth,

Hope to see you tomorrow.

Bumped.

On the way to Home Park today drop in and and ask how Jimmy development will effect the park master plan and where everyone are going to park. The more Argyle fans question it the better.

Well, given that TG was otherwise engaged last night, I popped along to the regular FOCP meeting up at the bowling green.
I was as disappointed as much as those inside Home Park, I must say, as the  FOCP are cautiously accepting the HHP plans, as they are on private land, although only if certain provisos are met, including the size of certain buildings, concerns regarding parking, and foreseeable drainage issues . The FOCP statement, which of course, is but one "resident" voice in the city, will be on the planning portal by 19 September.

Sorry I missed the meeting my apologies were sent in last week to the chairman, took the grandson to his first School night game.

This e-mail I had from them some weeks ago

Hi xxxxx,

Grateful if you would not share this on ATD for now. Apart from anything else, I am going away until next weekend and won’t be available to respond to any queries.

Many thanks,

Andrew

Subject: Higher Home Park developments

Dear Friend of Central Park Plymouth,

You will probably know that Plymouth Argyle are submitting a planning application for developments at Higher Home Park to include grandstand improvements, an ice rink and a building for cafés, gym and offices. The Vet’s site is also to be re-developed with an hotel subject to planning permission.

James Brent and the Development Manager, Tony Hopwood, have outlined their plans to FoCPP committee members over two meetings. At the first, we raised concerns about car-parking arrangements and the proximity of buildings to Gilbert Lane. These have been taken on board and, while we wait to see all the details, we firmly believe the revised plans take proper account of park amenity.

A development on this scale will usually have planning conditions and Section 106 agreements attached. In our discussions so far, we have said we want to see:

- A good entrance to the park – something similar to the one at Barn Park. It would need to span Gilbert Lane and the main path to the clock tower.

- Gilbert Lane hedgerows cleared of foreign matter and brought into management.

- Surface water used to enhance park amenity with a shallow pool near the lower end of Gilbert Lane (instead of the current muddy hollow).

- Interventions to ‘lift’ the area between PAFC and the Life Centre, and to separate traffic from pedestrians.

- An agreed landscape design for Zoo Field that works for the park and for PAFC.

PAFC appear willing to consider all these aspects. Obviously, a lot more work will be required – especially to agree designs and quality standards – but we have every reason to anticipate some significant enhancements and look forward to staying involved. We can discuss this as well as the current work at the next FoCPP meeting, Tuesday 12th September, Bowling Pavilion, 7.15 for 7.30 pm.

Best wishes,

Andrew
