We have exciting plans to preserve and expand Fairlop Waters by adding 250 acres to the park in the coming years. Working with the community, we want to create an inspiring vision for Fairlop Waters.

Throughout 2020, our parks and green spaces have become even more valuable for our health and wellbeing, providing us with essential spaces to relax, explore, and discover. The Council are working with the community engagement social enterprise ‘Street Space’ to engage with residents, businesses and organisations. We want to find out what extra leisure, cultural and environmental facilities local people would like to see in Fairlop Waters.

We invite you to explore this page and contribute your thoughts and ideas through the interactive features below. Please get involved and help to shape the future of Fairlop Waters!

    Since September we’ve had more than 150 face-to-face conversations with people both inside the park and outside, in neighbouring high streets, tube stations, parks, libraries and leisure centres. We’ve also had a huge response to our online survey, interactive map and ideas board which display the deep consideration, passions and interests that many have put into the research.

    On Wednesday 16th December at 6 pm, we will be hosting an online event to share what we have learnt through our engagement with people in the local community. Please visit the Eventbrite page to register for this event.

    As part of our engagement, we’ve been considering how everyone can continue to be involved beyond our initial engagement as a future vision is created over the next couple of years.

    It is imperative that any future vision for the park is created alongside the people who use, visit and appreciate it. We believe that Fairlop Waters should be reflective of the community it represents and must welcome and value the diverse voices, talents and contributions of community members in order to be truly inclusive. This means that our engagement with people in the community must extend beyond now and into the future, as a vision is created and changes are made. It is for these reasons that we have created a second online survey which will be online until 7th January 2021. We hope that through hearing your thoughts we can continue to work with people throughout the evolution of Fairlop Waters in the most meaningful and sustainable way.
