A garden for Burmarsh, Headcorn and Chislet?

The open space enclosed by Burmarsh, Headcorn and Chislet is largely unused and looks bleak.  At present it is used as a cut through, although there is a small playground. If access were restricted to residents, it could be turned into a usable communal garden, maybe with food growing plots. This is particularly needed by those who live in Burmarsh, which has four floors of maisonettes with no access to external space. People living in these blocks have have no shared area for meeting their neighbours, and a garden would provide a social space as well as be an opportunity for gardening projects.

Maisonettes in Burmarsh are accessed from an internal corridor; there is no access to external space from these homes.
