Install access to the newly constucted planter as follows; dig out a 60-90 cm wide strip from the gateway leading up to and along one side of the planter. Distance covered is approx. 25m. Remove spoil and insert compacted MOT base. Lay concrete slabs on a baseof sand and cement mix.

What we'll deliver:

  • Construct a raised timber planter

Why it's a great idea:

To resurrect community spirit that was envisaged when this estate was built in 1968. The area was abused by contractors dumping waste and neglected by Camden Council management. It became so overgrown residents requested help to clear it out. This area is a overlooks a frequently used route between Kilburn High Road and Kingsgate/Kilburn Grange Park, seen by many residents and visitors. We involve all ages to help maintain and develop and Orchard of trees that will promote wellbeing and a healthly lifestyle. We hope it will rebuild faith in the estate.

Steps to get it done:

  • Constuction of a raised timber planter, dig out and remove soil
