Verdict on the parklet

Wanstead’s parklet is nearly a year old, and people’s views on it are now being collected. A research project by the University of Westminster is asking residents what they make of it by taking part in an online survey.

Officially known as the Wanstead Mobility Hub, the parklet was installed last Spring and initially (we thought) looked rather attractive, though the woods and plants are in need of a bit of TLC. But it’s the mobility aspects the survey is really interested in (see pic below), and the survey raises the prospect of the hub only being there on an experimental basis.

The survey is here:

  1. I don’t get the point. Just a messy and unattractive obstacle on the pavement. A choice? Get rid of it!
