MEMBERS of the public have been given the chance to air their views about proposed improvements to a town's park and gardens.

North Hertfordshire District Council's development suggestions for Howard Park and gardens in Letchworth GC have been put together following consultation with residents last October.

On Saturday the plans were on display at Morrisons supermarket in Broadway and at the main hall at Howard Hall in Howard Park.

The proposals include the removal of the existing play area and public toilets and the reinstatement of the area to grass. New play areas and public conveniences would then be located closer to Howard Hall.

Restoration of the Ebenezer Howard memorial and a new amphitheatre seating area are also outlined in the plans.

Proposals to replace and install new park furniture, such as benches, bins, gates, signage and lighting, have also been made.

In addition, the refurbishment and new extension to the bowling club, to include a new kitchen, toilets and changing facilities, is also in the plans.

The cost of the current consultation is £58,000 but, until the results are assessed, a final figure cannot be put on the scheme.

You can view the proposals in full and give your comments on the NHDC website at www.north-herts.gov.uk
