Petition Comments

Our online petition with change.org will be closing soon as we need to present it to Gedling Borough Council.

Update: Our petition is closed now (2017)

We have had signatures from all over the UK and even one from America! Our supporters have left some lovely comments, here is a selection:

…I grew up living opposite this park, it was my sports ground, my fun fair, my babysitter, my meeting space, my imagination instigator. Would be a horrific loss to future Carlton kids to lose even an inch of it…

…parks are a crucial part of any community. They have a significant impact on the development of children and the happiness of everyone in the neighbourhood….

…It is a necessity that we have parks throughout our communities to ensure that every child has an equal opportunity to have fun, with family and friends at no expense…

…It’s a valuable open space and the community use it A LOT. To sell it off is short term gain and long term damage to the health and mental wellbeing of the community…

…This is one of the nicest park areas I know of. Set centrally amongst a community that could use more leisure facilities not more dwellings.  This park has so much potential for developing recreational activities for all ages.  Please encourage our children to exercise & use more outdoor facilities, rather than sit on street corners with nothing to do. To learn to socialise & interact with each other rather than with a computer or gaming device alone. Develop not Demolish ‘Onchan Park’…

…a valuable green space in an inner city area…

…we need these communal green areas, they can give a sense of community and space for young and old to come together…

You can see all the comments on the petition website.

This is the final push to get as many signatures on the online petition as possible. Please share among your friends and family and encourage them to sign.
