Key quotes from respondents

Looks good with a wide range of facilities to suit all ages / needs whilst retaining many of the original features / having a minimal effect on the green space.”

“I don’t think there is enough parking and it is quite a long way from the site. So this will force cars onto the nearby roads causing parking issues for residents.”

“Great plan, well listened to the community and well thought out […] Provision of secure bike sheds, or cycle/scooter docks could discourage driving.”

“Surely it could be bigger – a swimming pool with only four lanes; just two indoor courts – how will it cope with demands?”
