JSA launches HLF bid for Greenwich Park.
JSA have developed and submitted an application to the HLF for a £4.5 million grant to restore Greenwich Park. If successful, the grant will contribute to a £7.5 million restoration of this historic landscape led by The Royal Parks.
JSA acted as lead consultant for the scheme, co-ordinating the work of four different design teams and developing detailed proposals for the restoration of the Flower Garden and Wilderness Deer Park.
Greenwich Park is The Royal Parks most historically significant site. The Park lies within the Greenwich World Heritage Site, is a Grade I listed landscape and contains three Scheduled Ancient Monuments, four Grade I and ten Grade II listed buildings. The site is also a local nature reserve and is designated as a site of Metropolitan Importance for Nature Conservation. Greenwich has a continuous historical record dating to the mid-17th century which includes the only English landscape designed by Andre Le Notre. The restoration project will include the restoration of the Giant Steps, an extensive re-planting of the key structural tree avenues, works to the Park’s water bodies and the provision of a new education and outreach building.
If the HLF bid is successful development and delivery will take place between 2018 and 2022.
