On 15th April 2015, the Planning Committee of LBHammersmith & Fulham unanimously granted approval for the Friends’ application to construct a Pavilion adjacent to the Playground and the tennis courts on the south side of Brook Green. The Pavilion was designed for us in response to our specification requirements by de Rosee Sa, a firm of architects, whose principals live locally. The design has been progressed over the last 3 years through several concepts and four distinct proposals. These were extensively consulted upon with feedback taken into consideration as the design evolved. A significant majority supported the Friends’ proposed final design. At the meeting of the Planning Committee one Councillor noted that the Friends of Brook Green were to be congratulated for the manner in which we had taken forward this initiative.
Over the coming months the Pavilion Working Group will focus on satisfying the conditions attaching to the Planning Consent, detailed design specification, tendering and procurement of the construction works. If all proceeds to plan we would hope to start construction in the late autumn of this year.
This year we’re re-launching the Brook Green Community Prize – celebrating the very best of individuals and groups who make Brook Green what it is. At Brook Green Day on Saturday 19th September two winners will be announced (and prizes given):
The Brook Greener of the year – the person who, in the eyes of the prize sponsor and the Board of the FBG, has made the best contribution to the lives of those of us who live in and around Brook Green
The Brook Green Group of the year – the group who has made the most impact to the lives and opportunities of people who live, work and study around Brook Green
And we need your help! In the months ahead John Higgins will be combing the community asking to hear about what great things people have been up to… so if you want to recommend someone or some group, please get in contact with him on 07742 921588 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We are also pleased to announce that this year’s prizes will be generously sponsored by Finlay Brewer.
