DISMAY AT WILD FLOWER AREA
I am a resident of Newton Drive and I am writing to express my disappointment regarding the decision that was made to create a wild flower meadow on the open space at the end of Newton Drive in Compton Ares.
I (and many neighbours) are unaware of any consultation with the residents of the surrounding houses and/or users of this facility about this change of use. Is this another example of a unilateral decision taken on our behalf?
Recently a pathway has been cut (via mowing) through the grass. This process takes at least 30 minutes. Surely it would only take a little longer to cut the full area multiplied by four/five cuts a year. I suggest this money could be found. Surely as a community and neighbourhood we should stand up to these decisions on behalf of everyone that uses the field.
