ST JOHN’S CHURCHYARD, SOUTHWARK
Recently, Potter’s Field Park Management Trust have taken over the maintenance of the St. John’s Churchyard. The trust’s aspirations are to carry out improvements to churchyard which will elevate the park’s images comparable to Potter’s Field Park. The proposals to enhance the churchyard involves renewed shrub and colour planting, wetland planting, improved children’s play area together with flexible spaces that could accommodate community-led public events. The proposals are designed to sinuously integrate and enhance the existing mature landscape whilst building on the character of the churchyard by creating a sense of community for all ages.
The planning applications, for the overall improvement and the grade 2 listed railings, have been submitted and the team is currently working on the technical design information.
