I’ve been chatting to Justin about this tonight and it would also be great to
get your views and ideas if you have time.
I’ve just started in a new role at Wiltshire Council as Community Engagement
Manager and working on the River Park project with the Environment Agency. They
would like to engage the community and consult with various community groups.
If you’re not aware of the project the info can be found here -
In a nut shell the scheme is going to be located at Ashley Road open space and
Fisherton Recreation ground near Five Rivers, and following the river to The
Maltings and Central car park. The scheme will include building an embankment
to reduce flood risk, create a wetland area, create new board walks and
footbridges, and improve footpaths.
My reason for emailing is to ask if there is anything that they could add or
change that would support people with a visual impairment? For example, use of
certain colours on walls or paths, a contrast in textures on pathways, avoiding
the use of bollards in the middle of a path, etc?
Any views or ideas would be really helpful and I can feed this back.
