Dacorum Borough Council are asking for feedback on the restored Water Gardens – what do you think of the changes, how do you use the Gardens and what are your hopes for the future?
This will help them to evaluate the impact of the restoration project.
The online survey is open until midnight on Sunday 14 July 2019 at www.dacorum.gov.uk/consultation.
Paper copies are available from firstname.lastname@example.org
In 2017, Dacorum Borough Council completed a restoration project of the much-loved Gardens, returning them to their former glory. The project was funded by a £2.4m grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the National Lottery Community Fund, which we topped up with an investment of more than £1 million.
Restoration project improvements included – seven new bridges, flower garden (opposite Bank Court) replanted, widened terrace, restored statues, new signage, renovated balconies, new play area, new lighting and resurfaced paths, environmental improvements including better water quality, planting to support biodiversity, fish passes, and a new building and community garden where volunteers, groups and schools can learn about gardening.
The project also supports a programme of events and activities which take place throughout the Water Gardens.
