We the undersigned petition Reigate and Banstead Borough Council to ___SAVE KEATS AVENUE PLAYGROUND___. More details
More details from petition creator
Reigate & Banstead County Council has proposed to remove Keats Avenue Playground. I understand they feel it needs modernisation, and they would rather remove it, than invest any money.
Recreational areas for our children should be preserved; this is especially true since new housing developments have smaller gardens that wouldn’t be dreamt of 50 years ago, let alone given planning permission.
Council Tax is expensive; this playground is financially insignificant & will probably last in excess of 25 years. The playground was originally built by the housing developers 25 years ago.
It is a SAFE area for children to play, overlooked by dozens of houses; its small and un-intrusive to homeowners.
Our children deserve so much better than what is currently being offered by society. (Unemployment/ Pensions/ House prices). Childhood is precious and should be preserved.
Please save Keats Avenue Playground.
