The Poets Corner area of Herne Hill are having some innovative "green screens" installed over the coming months as part of the local traffic calming project. The Poets Corner residents group on the web site have been busy with discussions about the design of the structures and they will include fruit trees, vegetable and flower growing and be child friendly with a chalkboard and community noticeboard area. Check out the designs here.
This project has been adopted by Lambeth as part of their Cooperative Council pilot projects along with the work they are doing with the Design Council on community involvement in design of future servcies and projects.
What we are now on the lookout for is a construction company/team, preferably based in or near Lambeth (to keep the money local) who would like to turn the drawings into real life structures. There is a reasonable budget available and loads of help with the design and practicalities.
