Park Land Used For Houses

#1 by Micky boy , Thu May 28, 2015 11:54 am

Why o why is it ,that lovely park land, and a thriving wildlife has to be destroyed just for new houses? This is happening by me in kingshurst . There is enough waste land around to build on without destroying land that future generations can enjoy. Seems councils just filling there own

They tried to build on our Ley Hill Park but there was a
mass protest so we still have our park for now

The amount of open countryside being swallowed up around here is unbelieveable large amount's since I moved here that was in 74.

I agree. And after the waste land where industry has left there are plenty of golf cpurses that good well be built on, rather than being wasted on a useless so-called sport

If parkland Is designated for housing its worth finding out who actually owns it
A lot of parkland was donated by city residents bequests etc,
Anyone with a problem in this area should set up a residents group
Councils are duty bound to deal with them...

Trouble is SB, whatever the intention of the bequestee, councils, universities or whoever often are able, with the help of a dubious member of the legal profession, to overturn these wishes. It should be made a legal requirement that, if any organisation does not wish to abide by the desires of the legatee, then it should be returned in its entirety to their descendents. This occurred (info thanks to Heir Hunters) when victorians donated land for schools and was enforced.

Sorry Mike, I can't let you get rid of golf courses, even where there are three or more side by side.
The are almost dozens of people nearly getting slightly great enjoyment by paying thousands of pounds for the privilege of chasing each other across a park full of holes.
What would they do with all that free time? Do we really want these people roaming the streets?

On Sheldon Heath Road Sheldon there is a park. The Council (Borrowed) a small part of the park to use for a housing office which was in operation for a few years. When the office was closed down the Council was quite happy to sell the land, until they were reminded that a condition of the Council (borrowing) this land was that when they finished with it, the land was returned to the park. This was done and remains so to this day. Thanks to the local Neighbourhood forum.

You have a point Volty. It would probably be more expensive to build asylums to put them in (or prisons id they were politicians)
