Support for Proposed Development

Thursday 8 January 2015

Proposed development to secure the future of Ford Park:Information for members, friends & neighbours Summary of the plans Ford Park Community Group wants to build eight houses (two of them single storey) at the entrance to the park, near to Ford Park Crescent. The houses will cover a relatively small area of the parkland and will not affect the use of Ford Park as a resource for the whole community. Crucially, the income from this development will secure the future of Ford Park as a public amenity. If this modest development does not go ahead, the charity will be forced to wind up and the land will have to be sold. If this happens, there is a real risk that Ford Park will end up being a neglected eyesore, or that the whole park will be acquired as a site for development. This further information explains the detail of the plans, how they will affect the park and the neighbourhood, and why Ford Park needs your support to ensure its future as a place residents and visitors can enjoy for many years to come.Read More
