Now that the Masterplan for the Suffolk Park Parkland is hurriedly due for release, and people can ‘submit comments’ to what has already been organised and planned, and Suffolk Park Progress Association (SPPA) has been the main community representation in this process, Suffolk Park residents have a number of questions for Council.
Is it true that the diligent people successfully doing the community gardens for nothing for several years (in line with global community and environmental initiatives, and all welcome policy) will now have to submit and tender?
What is all this costing, in times of hardship and homelessness?
Given the Pump Track trauma that has caused serious upset for all those who were shocked, and those directly affected by the bulldozers and dust and noise upheaval from early morning till late now, almost every day since Easter, how can people now trust what the ‘Masterplan’ holds for this precious but seriously damaged place, despite token ‘community consultation’?
