The first two emails, sent on 29 September 2021 and 13 October 2021 by the same individual, raise concerns about the proposal. This concern is primarily regarding the loss of green space due to the artificial grass pitches, the café, and the associated additional parking spaces that the proposal would create. The sender requests that the King George V Playing Fields be left as it is for the enjoyment of other users as access to green spaces is good for mental health. The sender does acknowledge that improvements to the pavilion and the creation of toilets would be beneficial to local sports teams. Finally, the sender asks that the proposal be relocated to another site.
The second email, sent on 16 October 2021 is from an individual who attended the Cosham Community Event. This individual is supportive of the proposal, citing the need for improved pitches and better support for local football. The sender asks if there is the option for inclusion of other sports as they believe that this will be a good way to generate income. They also mention some current maintenance issues with the current grass pitches but seem confident that the new proposal will address this.
