A CONSULTATION on the future of the Green Chain Walk has been opened up to residents in south-east London.
The Green Chain partnership, made up of representatives from Greenwich, Bexley, Bromley, Southwark and Lewisham councils, has drafted a management plan setting out a range of targets for 2014.
The plan includes proposals to improve the management and use of the route, which stretches from Erith to Crystal Palace, including a seven-mile extension to Dulwich Park.
Among 50 points in the plan are other proposals to enhance the marketing strategy of the Green Chain Walk and to increase community involvement with a newsletter and festival. Councillor Mary Mills, chair of the Green Chain Joint Committee, said: "The South East London Green Chain has links to other networks of London footpaths and the way we run it affects a wide area.
"Green Space designation protects open spaces from development so it's important that people make the effort to give their views on how local authorities use them as a resource for walking, recreation and education."
The full plan is available to be viewed and commented on at the Green Chain website at www.greenchain.com.
Residents can also respond to the draft by emailing info@greenchain.
com, faxing 020 8921 5442 or writing to Green Chain Project Office, Crown Building, 48 Woolwich New Road, Woolwich, London SE18 6HQ.
Respondents must refer to specific paragraphs of the plan and state whether they support or object to them. Alternative suggestions to any proposals that are objected to are also welcome. Closing date for responses is Monday, August 31.
