End of Summer Street Parties

Last Sunday witnessed a very successful community street party in York Rise. A big thank you to the organisers …

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We had the following responses to our questions about living in Dartmouth Park:
What do you love about the area?
Pretty much everything!
Friendly neighbourhood
Proximity to the Heath
What would you change?
Encourage more walking and cycling in the area
Reduce traffic in Chetwynd Road – Speed – Hours – Make a one way route
To much dog poo on the streets!
Need for more / better shops on Swains Lane and Highgate Road
Redirect traffic during school drop off and pick at Brookfield School – encourage children to arrive by bike or on foot
Plant more trees / protect green spaces / create community gardens

 

Look out for the Parliament Hill Party, organised by the Gordon House Road Residents, on the 24th September

The survey contains less than 20 questions, is completely anonymous, and is open until midnight of Monday 19 June.

Please forward this survey to everyone who shares your interest in the Heath.
