Say NO to Maldon Road Park Development
Maldon Road Park has been a place for fun and relaxing as far back as 1850, and has changed very little in that time. It is visited by hundreds of families and groups of friends annually, and offers an escape from the hussle and bussle of the town.
The local Government is looking to build 84 houses next to the park. Using the field behind the Cricket Pavillion next to the residential home on Riverview, and also on the land running along the alleyway that connects Riverview with Maldon Road Park.
It is inevitable that future housing projects will have to happen, given the ever growing population. However, to build 84 homes in this area would damage the visual appeal of the park, increase polution and noise, damage the wildlife that dwell there and in the surrounding areas including the River Brain. Not to mention adding extra stress to an already exasperated traffic problem in the town.
Please take a moment to fill in the petition if you agree it should not be given the go ahead. I will be printing hand made petitions as well, and I am hoping to get the local radio to address the issues with it's listeners and help drum up support.

Also please link this to your friends that you feel would like to sign as well.
Maldon Road Park is a place for us all to enjoy. Let's keep it that way.
