Plans to give Homefield Recreation Ground a much needed makeover have been drawn up and will be considered by the Chiswick Area Monitoring Committee next week.

The park has become run down and neglected as is the case with many of parks and open spaces within the borough which suffer from under funding.

Following a request by Councillor Robert Oulds, a list of options for improving the park was compiled and includes:

  • Create new tarmac path (existing path end to the gate on Chiswick Lane)
  • Resurface existing paths and tarmac area
  • Orchard planting towards North West corner of site approximately 16 trees
  • Tree Planting (heavy standards) throughout site approximately 12 trees
  • Replant existing shrub beds and create new beds
  • Upgrade and refurbish the existing play area. To supply and install new equipment as per the play area plan when consultation has been carried out
  • To supply and install four new benches, four bins and a new collapsible bollard near nursery building
  • Install replica fencing to include new pedestrian and vehicular gates to match
  • Renovation and refurbishment of the existing toilet Block

According to the report, the total financial commitment required to fulfill the project is £352,121.97.
