RESIDENTS in Potters Bar will have a chance to discuss the design of a new shelter near a popular town leisure complex tonight (Wednesday).
Members of the public are invited to a meeting at Furzefield Leisure Centre, in Mutton Lane, to find out more about the lottery-funded community facility.
About 50 people have already given their views about the look of the shelter, which will be constructed on open space next to the sports centre, following a consultation earlier this summer.
Ed Sandham, sports and cultural services manager at Hertsmere Borough Council and project lead, said: "The best way to describe the shelter is that it consists of three 'shards' sticking out of the ground which have some 'shelves' for seating attached.
You may also want to watch:
"There is low-level seating as well as the opportunity to climb higher and sit at the top of the structure. This particular feature was included as in previous consultation people said they wanted somewhere to sit high up."
Cllr Brenda Batten said: "I would like to thank local people for getting involved with this project and helping us to create a unique meeting space for park users to enjoy.

She added the meeting would give an opportunity for any outstanding issues to be addressed before construction starts next month.
It is expected to be completed in January 2010.
