Engagement : Highgate Library and Highgate Newton Community Centre (HNCC) Pop Ups

hncc and highgate library

make:good recently popped up at Highgate Library and the HNCC where they asked various library goers ‘What do you love about where you live?’ They spoke to a number of parents who were attending the rhyme time session and toddlers dance and drum classes and heard about the different activities on offer to parents with young children. The residents they spoke to love their community facilities and want to see them retained.

make:good also spoke to residents about existing facilities in the area that they would like to see enhanced or improved in some way and heard suggestions such as:

-Using some of the green spaces to programme activities for teenagers and youth groups in the area

-Improving the 3 Point Park playground facilities by Whittington Estate

-Opening up and offering a range of shops on the ground floor of the Chester Balmor development 

make:good will be collecting all the information they hear and putting it towards a report that will inform the Dartmouth Park Neighbourhood Plan- a document which will be submitted to the Council, and will be used to express community views on Dartmouth Park, and steer potential future developments..
