I don’t agree with the plans for King Edward Memorial Park as the impacts to the community are unreasonably excessive, especially considering there is a viable alternative. I believe that Thames Water should have chosen the alternative site at Heckford Street Industrial Park and I implore the Planning Inspectorate to review this brownfield site instead. The park is one of the only greenspaces in the local area and is very small already - it is an important part of our community where many social events and family events take place and our children and families enjoy just as general use as a park aswell. Why spoil this highly utilised and valued area when there is a completely viable alternative that wont affect greenspace. Please dont reduce our greenspace in the city it is so valued by our local community. In this case where there is an alternative it is just not necessary.
