The present park is a legacy of the now disbanded London Docklands Development Corporation, known as the LDDC.
The first consultation workshop is planned for Saturday 13 March with the final design going on show towards the end of June.
Early suggestions from Tooley Street residents include a ban on events which destroy the grass and the removal of illegal traders. There were also calls for public toilets for visitors.
• The first mention of Potters Fields is 1681 and Eelco Hooftman hopes consideration will be given to including pottery in the area which he sees as more 'garden' than 'park'.
• A website is to be launched shortly.
