30 September is the (official) deadline for comments on the future of our green spaces – PLEASE RESPOND.

Reminder: 30 September is the (official) deadline for comments on the future of our green spaces. Responses can be submitted via link below. As recent local press coverage demonstrates, we’re already seeing the effects of budget cut-backs on our local parks as these are used for commercial money-making activities. The row over the future of Barnard Park is partly about this. Meantime Spa Fields was recently closed for filming without warning to local residents, while no date has yet been fixed for the planning application for a market inside Mary Magdalene Gardens (which will net little, if any income for the council after the church/applicant have taken their cuts). Again, in the LB Islington, Paradise Park was closed twice during the hot summer weather for deeply unrestful and unquiet funfair.
