Protest at Town Hall over park destruction

Councillor Peter Fielding, who represents the Dodworth ward, urged highways bosses to go back to the drawing board given the huge public backlash the scheme has had.

“We amassed a huge petition and hundreds of written objections originally before the plan was approved, but we have had more than 100 more to the latest consultation,” he told the Chronicle.

“Penny Pie Park is clearly treasured and it needs to be maintained for future generations to enjoy.

“We’re urging the council to go back to the drawing board as the scheme is very much against the public’s wishes.

“There are multiple concerns about air pollution, road safety and traffic before you even mention about the carving up of a much-loved park.
