West Smethwick Park Restoration Bid

Urban Design, alongside their client Parks and Countryside Services, submitted a Round 1 bid to the HLF for funding to develop park restoration proposals. Not only was the bid successful, but the Urban Design team was also chosen, against national competition, to carry out this work.

“I am delighted that Sandwell Council has been awarded heritage lottery funding for West Smethwick Park. This park is so well used by the diverse communities that live around the park. To have a project that brings the best of our diversity together is a legacy for future generations to come”.  Councillor Preet Gill, local ward member and Cabinet Member for Public Health and Protection.

A ‘Round 2’ bid will be submitted in February 2017, which if successful, means a further HLF grant will be awarded for the delivery of the scheme to completion.
