We (that's Richard Oglethorpe and I) recently got in touch with people living near the Greenhill Nursery site to find out what they thought the land should be used for.
The Council has decided it's "surplus to requirements" and there'll be a decision in the not too distant future about what it should be used for.
We were keen that people had a chance to have their say before any report was written.
There were quite a few replies to our letter. Local people raised some problems with the site but also made suggestions as to future use. Allotments was the most popular, although some wanted low density housing.
We want to make sure that everyone has had a chance to give their view so we've written again with a survey and a freepost envelope. The paper survey is important because it gives us evidence of what local people think.
We do hope you'll return your survey if you get one (even if you did not contact us previously). If you don't get a survey but still have an opinion, please e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your comments but also letting me know where you live.
The postal surveys should have arrived by tomorrow (Thursday)
