Letter & photographs sent by a resident to T&WC

Please see photos taken today 18th Nov 2015 of Informal play area also
proposed football pitch off Wellington Road Newport.

This is hardly a green open space as proposed by the developers &
approved by T&W Council planning committee.
I wish to propose that the site off Station Road, South of old railway
line is now dedicated as such an area. In lieu of that LOST at the Wellington Road site.
T&W council have requested members of the public to nominate such areas
be protected in perpetuity
.Telford and Wrekin Council’s deputy leader, Labour councillor Richard Overton, said the plans aimed to give residents peace of mind about open spaces they valued.

> “There might be just an area where a scout group go and do their yearly fun day or a dog walking space that people use a lot which is valued by the community and because of some of this rhetoric by government about building, and they do see some spaces being built on, people are always worried that that space down the road might be one of these to go,” he said.

> By T&W,s own admission there is a lack of open recretional spaces in Newport.
