March 2020 Update

Fulham Football Club works are proceeding with the new stand on the river front.  There has been an application to add a landing stage to the walk way for use when the tide is high.  FoBP have been to the meeting and will report back.

The Rose Garden by the Spanish Memorial – the works to the beds has been carried out. All beds now have metal edging and the grass paths between have been reseeded.  Fingers crossed the pigeons don’t eat all the seed.

Due to storm Ciara, work to cut back and repair some of the damaged limbs on the trees has been carried out.

URGENT: Fulham Football Club Planning Application

Last Chance to Have YOUR say by 18th March 2018!

Please take a moment to read this information regarding the proposed new stand and facilities. The closing date for objections has been extended to 18th March 2018 and should be addressed to Sian Brown, Planning Officer, at Sian.Brown@lbhf.gov.uk

reference: FFC Planning Application 2017/04662FUL.

    Things you need to know:

  • Fielders Meadow will be closed for TWO years for use as part of the building site.
  • Nothing to assure us of what the park will look like after it is handed back.
  • Likely substantial loss of amenity to Bishops park as turnstiles for the proposed new riverside stand will now be accessed from the park.
  • Proposed new stand will encroach 11 metres into the Thames which will affect wildlife and use of the river.

The full text of the objection letter from the Friends can be found here.

Closure of Fielders Meadow

Update – Developments at FFC and use of Fielders Meadow

The Friends of Bishops Park have been having ongoing dialogue with H&F Council, Fulham Football Club (FFC) and the Church Commissioners about the development of the Riverside Stand and the partial use of Fielders Meadow for a two year period as a site to store materials etc. whilst this development takes place. There have been many questions around whether this is an appropriate use of the park, even for a temporary period.

Whilst many residents have expressed their concerns we have tried to have then addressed by the relevant parties and have sought assurances that any damage to the fabric of the park is dealt with once the works are completed. There are significant financial incentives attached to FFC leasing this part of the park which is separate to the S106 money attached the approved planning application.
