City centre greening - parks, planters and grot spots

  1. What the project will do

    We'll be adding new plants in the city centre parks: Sackville Gardens, St John's Gardens and Parsonage Gardens. By using plants that are hardier and need less care, the parks will look better and be cheaper and easier to look after.

    We've also been taking a fresh look at the large planters in the centre. We'll be sprucing them up with new plants and buying extra planters to bring a welcome bit of green to our city centre.

    Finally there are some area that we own that have become 'grot' spots, so we'll be taking care to make sure that they are cleaned up and brighten up with some greenery.
