Public Consultation at Fort Amherst September 2008
Written by Administrator   

The Friends had manned the stand at the ‘Great Lines City Park’ consultation event at Fort Amherst, and had recruited some more members including Vanessa and Jez Dean. Thanks to Mid Kent College for printing 300 more FoAG leaflets. The event was quite well attended, although Vanessa Dean felt it should have been advertised more widely. The public were able to see sketch proposals regarding the Great Lines City Park at the Fort Amherst event, put stickers on flip charts, listen to the design brief, and discuss the proposals (including a possible new name for the Park). There was egg launching for the children, and guided tours of the Fort. A summary of the event, what came out of it, and what will happen next can be viewed on the Chatham World Heritage website:
