Dogpool Lane, Selly Park

Illustrative sketch to show how the public space could look

Public Space

Proposals include a new community-designed public space, on the corner of Dogpool Lane and Pershore Road and in front of the new Post Office on Pershore Road. This neighbourhood pocket park would include a unique commissioned artwork installation. Inspiration for how the space could work are shown below.

We want to create a vibrant and safe space for the whole community to enjoy. Some questions to guide the design process are included below, and we’d like to thank those who took the time to share their feedback with us.
