Roundhouse Public Consultation

OD4A2731eMag logo 100x75The Canal and River Trust,  partnered by The National Trust, is asking the public for ideas on how to use the Roundhouse.

How they have informed the public about this I don’t know. I am a Friend of the CRT and have not been notified nor has it appeared yet in the canal magazines I read.

important aspects for you?
3. Is this something you or your organisation could be involved
4. What do you think about our initial ideas on audiences, uses
and activities?
5. Do you know of any opportunities that we could link to the

This is definitely something we residents (and non-resident owners) need to get involved with. It could enhance the KEW lifestyle and desirability of the property. But the wrong use of the building could do just the opposite.
