"We have a really tight budget."
She added: "There will be CCTV cameras going in.
"They will be overlooking the garden.
"At the moment we don't have the funds for a gate.
"The gate will be the second stage of the project.
"There are not going to be any benches in there."
One resident said there were issues with fly-tipping nearby.
Ms Britton said: "We are hoping the garden will avert some of the fly-tipping that has been going on there."
Another resident said: "I feel sorry for the flowers as they won't be there long."
