Travesty to take park from so many who enjoy it
With regards to the article written in the Peninsula News ("Pocket parks face renewed threat", May 18), I would like to voice my concern.
I have resided in my house that fronts onto the reserve for 25 years and any development would affect me greatly.
It would not only restrict access into my home but would devalue it entirely.
My father occupies the house at the front of the block and any new development would cause him undue stress.
My father and I have maintained the reserve personally by mowing and cleaning up any rubbish that has been disposed of by passing individuals and their animals.
We feel the reserve is a huge part of us and our serene lifestyle.
It is utilised by so many in the surrounding area, and it would be a travesty if it was taken from those who enjoy it.
I am disappointed that I have not had any contact with the council as to their proposal, as I am the one it affects the most.
I did however receive a survey regarding the traffic use in the rear lane.
I hope council sees that the reserves are an important contribution to the already over-populated Peninsula and keeps them available for future generations and wildlife to enjoy.
