We do not agree with a car park on our community field, next to Langney Primary School
The children's parents of Langley Primary School Chailey Close off of Etchingham Road Langley are wanting to turn part of the the recreation ground next to Langney Primary School into the car park. This petition is against this to happen.
We believe as a community if the recreation ground was to turn into a car park.
it will bring anti social behaviour as children from the estate wont have nowhere to play.
it will be more unsafe for children who walk to school as the more build up in cars the more car accidents can happen.
It has not been long that there is now parking attendants to stop cars parking on yellow lines and parking on unsafe areas.
There is build up of cars from parents who live just around the corner.
Many Bishop Bell children walk across the grounds to and from school.
People use the grounds for play, picnics and dog walks.
Those children walking to and from school is a good way to keep fit where as having a car park will encourage less walking for children.
and its taking away dog walking facilities for elderly people who live in the area who cant walk far.
I have heard from many residents that have lived on this estate for many years that when there was a priory here that the field belonged to the priory and when the priory sold it to Eastbourne council there was an agreement made that the field stayed how its is for the residents of this estate and that was agreed so if the council turn there backs on that agreement then they are wiping their hands of the people of the community.
I feel that it should stay how it is but its not upto me as its everyones decision at the end of the day and so please dont shoot the messenger im just doing what i think is right
at the end of the day these parents are being lazy.
Parents who even park up safely in Etchingham road sit in there cars waiting for there children to come to them. which clearly shows they wont even get out the car for that extra 10 yards.
This field is being used. it wont be fair to take it away.
