EcoPark House will be an education and visitors’ centre where people can find out more about recycling resources, heat, power, and how to reduce the carbon impact of their waste.
The two-storey building will face onto the River Lee Navigation and have office space on the upper floors. It will also provide a long-term space for Edmonton Sea Cadets, who currently use the site.
The Sea Cadets currently meet at the wharf on the River Lee Navigation and use the building there and our Project will secure its continued community use. Based in Edmonton since 1942, the Sea Cadets’ purpose is to celebrate Britain’s maritime heritage and contribute to its future development by supporting young people.
We will also offer pre-arranged EcoPark tours from the House – including a safe and engaging walk around the site – to give our communities a chance to see how we will generate heat and power from the waste left after recycling.
