What have been some of the projects you’ve worked on?
Marlpit Community Garden – which lies where city and countryside meet in the valley of the River Wensum. The site combines small plots for individuals, families and groups with areas of communal growing sustained by volunteers, an orchard, a netted enclosure for soft fruit, an apiary and a forest garden. We helped with the access arrangements and flood risk assessment, for the site which received overwhelming support from Norwich City Council Planning Committee.
Martham Recreation Ground – which has a Trust that exists to manage, maintain and improve the public recreation ground, sports facilities, playground and skate park in Martham. Richard Jackson helped the Trust to assess the recreation ground changing rooms indicating the facilities were no longer fit for purpose through a condition report, to kick off the project. The report produced an assessment of the facilities which enabled the scheme to get additional funding to move onto the next stage of development.
