Have your say on the future of Bradbourne Lakes
SEVENOAKS District Council is asking residents to have their say on a future Vision for the Bradbourne Lakes in Sevenoaks.
The Council is running consultation events on Thursday 9 August between 2pm and 5pm and Saturday 11 August from 10am to 1pm by the monolith in the south park of Bradbourne Lakes, where residents can view suggestions and feedback their ideas.
The community’s views will inform a new Vision for the Lakes to be used to bid for external funding to carry out future improvements.
The Bradbourne Lakes are a local park of historic and local significance. Dating back to the 18th Century and formerly part of the Bradbourne Estate, the much-loved park comprises a series of five ornamental lakes with waterfalls, cascades and a circular walking route set in areas of open space which include some of the town’s finest trees.
Sevenoaks District Council’s Cabinet Member for Direct Services, Matthew Dickins, says: “The Bradbourne Lakes are a tranquil oasis in Sevenoaks and hold a very special place in the lives of residents and visitors alike.
“By working with the whole community, we want to draw up an ambitious Vision for the Lakes which we can use to attract external funding for future improvements.
“Whether you’re a neighbour, seasoned visitor or have even never been, I urge you to come along to the events to share your thoughts, or take a look on the website then drop us a line.”
Free on-street parking is available in the roads around the Lakes, with the closest to the monolith being on Betenson Avenue (TN13 3ER).
Those unable to attend the events can view and comment on the proposals from Thursday 9 August by going to www.sevenoaks.gov.uk/bradbournelakes until 12 noon on Friday 24 August.
