The planning application following on from the Palmer Park consultation last year has appeared on the Council's planning website. You have up until February 2, 2010 to respond. The Design and Access Statement doesn't appear to open up properly at the moment so I've asked them to look into this.
My first thoughts are yes to the play equipment, tree and planting improvements. I had previous concerns that with the changes to car parking we were going to lose a significant amount of parkland. But having a quick look on Google maps we don't seem to be losing too much in front of the stadium and we will be reclaiming some from the old recycling car park. So at first glance there doesn't appear to be any net loss. I'll have a more detailed look at the weekend.
