Halsmere Road Green Corridor

Digging Halsmere By Digging Halsmere

We want to transform the concrete underpass at the end of Halsmere Road into a living vibrant colourful public space for the whole community to enjoy.

Camberwell Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

The underpass is currently dimly lit, neglected and blighted by problems with fly-tipping, littering and anti-social behaviour. Local people avoid using it despite it being a great pedestrian cut through to and fro Myatts Fields park. We want to change this by redesigning the space, creating a green safe pathway for local people to use and feel proud of.

What we'll deliver:

  • Create a food growing area with watering point for local people to grow fruit and vegetables
  • Install additional lighting to ensure the underpass remains fully lit and thereby most importantly safe
  • Install free standing planters to run the whole length of the underpass stuffed with aromatic herbs and plants
  • Install recycling waste-bins as well as repairing and securing the existing bin storage cupboards
  • Remove the concrete bollards at the entrances to the underpass and replace with green structures
  • Create a road name for the Green Corridor
  • Create new, properly delineated bedding areas to grow flowers and shrubs and attract wildlife
  • Work with a public space design service to creatively reconfigure the layout of the underpass

Why it's a great idea:

This project will have an enormous impact on the local area. It will create a positive and healthy environment with great social and physical benefits as well as bringing the community together building connections in a creative way.

Steps to get it done:

  • As a community we will work together to clear rubbish, build and fill planters
  • Contract specialist services to fix cupboards, install a water system, remove bollards and level the road surface
  • Secure wood for planters from Whitton Timbers
  • Solicit ideas for the road name and work with a local artist in its creation
