Petition Tag - green space
The space in front of Carter Place Police Station on the Walworth Road has been a garden ever since the land was enclosed. It is unique in being the only green space along the Walworth Rd that has never been developed.
The garden won many prizes, was a source of local pride and was even visited by HM the Queen Mother.
When our local police moved from the site, the garden was bought by a developer and they have been trying to build on it ever since. Local people and Councillors have successfully fought this so far, but we are now coming to the showdown when either this garden gets obliterated under a massive building of shops and flats.
We have an alternative. Help us to get the site protected so that it remains as a garden for the people of Walworth and Southwark to enjoy once again.
Summit Township in Mason County, Michigan has awarded a bid to a Muskegon contractor to design and build a 2,880 square foot Township Hall in the middle of Summit Township Park.
This would permanently eliminate the recreational area located between the restrooms and the tennis courts.
Save our park, save our green space.
BACKGROUND - Proposed Skate Park in Elthorne Park, Hanwell W7
Ealing Council is undertaking a consultation of local residents concerning the building of Ealing's Skate Park within Elthorne Park in Hanwell. This would be a facility for skateboarders, in-line skaters and BMXers.
It is proposed that the Skate Park would be positioned at the rear of the formal part of Elthorne Park, adjacent to Elthorne High School and the Sports Centre. It would be constructed out of concrete to allow for freeform design, low ongoing maintenance costs and long life expectancy. The Council has allocated £200K to the building of this facility.
I think Gordon Bell high school should have a Green Space AKA FIELD.
In 2003 the Public School Board along with the Catholic School Board decided not to build schools in Briarwood. The land that tho schools were to be built on is owned by three groups; Boychuck Construction (60%), Northridge (10%) and the City of Saskatoon (30%).
The land was rezoned for single family dwellings and the developers would like to proceed with the building of such houses. The builders presented the community with a plan to build 44 dwellings in the above mentioned sites.
The residents of Briarwood feel deceived by the decision not to build a school, since the purchase of their homes was based on the assumption that a school would be placed in these lots. The residents that own lots adjacent to the school sites paid a premium for their lots that is not equitable to what residents who neighbor other developed areas paid.
The builders will profit from the development of these sites, the City will profit not onlyl from the sale, but from the property taxes generated by this lots and the residents of Briarwood will lose the green space that a school yard would have provided our community.
