Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Kingston Council has recently submitted a planning application to build a new town square, pocket park and pedestrian link in New Malden, as part of the first phase of the Cocks Crescent development.

The proposed works would take place in part on the former Adult Resource Centre site, and will respond to feedback received from local residents during co-design consultation events in 2019. If approved, work will begin in spring 2021 and is expected to be completed in the summer.

The proposed works include:

- A new public square and pedestrian/cycle link, connecting the site to Burlington Road

- A new, landscaped pocket park on Burlington Road, transforming a vacant plot of land into a small green space

- Resurfacing of the former Adult Resource Centre site, to provide a level, more accessible space to enable the centre to be reopened to the public

- The introduction of planters and areas of bark chippings

- New street lighting and furniture (including benches, bins and cycle stands)

We are currently working with residents to help plan a series of community led activities across the Cocks Crescent site in advance of construction work starting on the main development in a few years’ time. Upgrading this space will allow for a wider range of community projects and events to be held here in the future.

Residents are invited to submit their comments on the planning proposal.
