Engagement: Parliament Hill Farmers’ Market and York Rise

Parliament Hill

On Saturday the 19th of March, make:good popped up at Parliament Hill farmers market where they got the chance to speak to a number of residents from Dartmouth Park and surrounding areas. Located in front of the doggy crèche at the entrance to the market, they found out what people love about the area, and what people would like to change. A lot of the residents held strong views on the protection of the heath and the accessibility of the area for cyclists.

After the market the pop up was moved to the bottom of York Rise at the estates by the railway. Although much more quiet than the market, they managed to speak to a number of council tenants. Some of the issues raised included:

Worry about the increasing house prices

Opening up the well loved Dartmouth Arms again

Having more grass on the estate and more green space to play
