The North Kelvin Meadow and Children's Wood are a multi-use wild green space between Maryhill and North Kelvin in Glasgow.
It is bounded by Clouston, Sanda and Kelbourne Streets, and used to be football pitches and tennis courts. For 20 years, since the City Council abandoned the land, local residents have been looking after it.
Around 1000 people per month have been using the land at formal events over the last year, and many more use it informally for their children to play in, for dog-walking, and for environmental issues such as growing food and composting. A planning application has been submitted which will level all but a handful of the 480 trees on the site.
We are past the point at which we are allowed to make formal representation to the Planning Department. But we still need your support - this petition will be used in an appeal to the Scottish Government if the planning application is approved by the City Council.
Please follow the links for much more on this issue of the importance of wild green space that is so important to all of us.
We, the undersigned, support the land in Glasgow commonly known as the North Kelvin Meadow and Children's Wood continuing to be a green space for all to use and enjoy.
We object to it being sold off for any housing development by Glasgow City Council.
