Refuse the planning application for the Recovery Day Centre next to the nursery. Keep our children safe.
The City Council is planning to open a Recovery Day Centre near our Nursery, when we say near we mean we share one wall with them.
Leicester City Centre has a high crime rate and many street drinkers. The council is planning to increase the hazard by bringing into the area street drinkers who are alcohol dependant and homeless. These individuals usually have anger issues and their language can be unsuitable for children's ears... they can be involved in fights fuelled by alcohol and could also use drugs..... definitely unsuitable to be around young children.The location they have chosen is between a day nursery and a day centre for elderlies. Nearby there are stores for children's uniforms and local shops already struggling with the intimidation and bad manners and language together with the crimes in the area. A large number of young families use the area and also take their children when there are fairs and food stores. We believe the children safeguarding should be the first thing the council should prioritise, together with the survival of the businesses in the area. Survival that would not be guaranteed if this went ahead.
Please help us protect our children and sign the petition, then share it with your facebook friends.
