Have your say

At the weekend I visited and spent some lovely quality and tranquil time at Boston Square Sensory Park in Hunstanton which was built in 2001 with a contract value of £0.3 million. Special emphasis was given to the needs of people with physical and mental disabilities. The borough councillors of 2001 clearly got this right and had the best interests of the public at heart.

The borough councillors of the late 80s and 90s also got it right when they planned Lynnsport and Leisure Park, saying it would represent one of the region’s most comprehensive community recreation schemes and was a

£6.5 million investment in the community’s future health. Since that time is has been at the heart of the community and remains a very important area of green space. Councillors of the 90s knew that fee paying clubs and facilities were not suitable for everyone and put people before profit and wanted to enhance our beautiful towns. Mr Bellingham has said he is opposed to moving the hockey pitches and building on that site and he believes the road will be a rat run. He also says he has no influence over the decisions made at the council and accepts that decisions are party led. So who will stop them? We have been accused of being politically motivated and yet we have members and supporters representing all political parties who are united in standing together in opposition to the planned development at Lynnsport Leisure Park and the new road through North Lynn. If you wish to support us please help us by signing and circulating the petition to Greg Clark MP the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government at https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/public-inquiry-into-development-on-lynnsport-park – also please contact your local councillors and Henry Bellingham.
