The 5th Southgate Scouts were shocked to discover that a second planning application has been submitted to use their sports field. [Their field is adjacent to the New River in Fords Grove.] This one has minor changes, including toilets, which apparently the children will be able to use!
Scout leader Jayne Poole has asked if once again for help from local residents, to lodge objections, to reiterate to the planning department that this is community open space, not vacant land; which is used by scores of children.
You may object to the planning application on-line.
