Melsome Road Old Playground
This Petition is regarding the unused land in the middle of the Melsome Road Estate, Lyneham, Chippenham.
The land in question looks to be a former children’s playground but over the years has fallen into disuse, as shown in the images below. It is now fenced off from the public. The surrounding bushes have become overgrown, infested with thorn/bramble trees and are now encroaching into resident’s gardens. The land has been used for “fly-tipping” and I now fear has been infested with rats among other wildlife.
Our plan is to see funding from the Defence Infrastructure Organisation released to Carillion Amey (Regional Prime and National Housing contractors for the MOD) used to clear the area completely, to create a safe communal area for the residents of Melsome Road Estate and the wider Lyneham village community.
Although this has been previously highlighted to DIO a number of times, the work has not been granted the funding needed. I plan on re-opening this case and seeing it to completion. In order to achieve this I have requested the support of our local MP and also request the support of the local community (YOU).
