Object to building on Deptford Children's Play Area

Click to Object
These pictures show a small but lovely children's wildlife garden by a natural playground designed by the community. And the proposed development to be built on it.
DeptfordFolk are supporting a campaign to ensure a proposal to build an apartment block on a children's play area in another local park, Charlotte Turner Gardens.

Please help by submitting a response to the planning via an easy click and send template HERE. Feel free to add any additional comments. Thank you to the campaign group for writing this response.

This lovely park is well used by children living locally and those who attend Rachel McMillan Nursery School and Invicta Deptford. 

The tiny bit of land in question was gifted to The Midi Music Company, a Lewisham based charity, many years ago. The land had a community use covenant which was removed prior to the sale of the land by Midi Music to a developer.

Read more about this story HERE from NewsShopper. The Midi Music Company did not offer the land to Greenwich Council or the Trust caring for the park. They just sold the land from under the feet of some of London's poorest children in what's can only be described as an "act of violence" against children. 

Greenwich Council rejected the proposal but the developer has lodged an appeal with the planning inspectorate. Read more HERE. Read more about the local campaign group objecting to the plans HERE.

Parks matter, play spaces matter and greenspaces matter. We need to protect our parks and green spaces from development or they will be lost forever. It matters.
Please object by August 21st.

Incredible how much the developer wants to cram onto this tiny plot thanks to the removal of the Community Use Covenant by Midi-Music "charity". Read more HERE.
