Topic: Hounslow to build on a recreation ground?

I have received this.

Hounslow Council is threteaning to allow a free school to build their premises on a small park in Brentford known as Brent Lea Rec.
Please help us to stop this by signing our petition:

https://www.change.org/p/london-borough-of-hounslow-save-brent-lea-recreation-ground

You will remember that at the beginning of the year Hounslow inserted a clause to say that they could use recreational grounds for 'educational purposes'.  Now they are about to do it.  Over the years Hounslow (and other Boroughs) have been selling off every bit of property available to them without doing the investment in schools, surgeries etc.  Now they are eyeing up our all too valuable amenity spaces and because they were not challenged at the time the clause was inserted, they now have carte blanche to cover green spaces with buildings.

For example, when they sold off the Chiswick Day Care Centre for luxury housing, they could have rebuilt the site with the same 4 stories  as are being used for the town houses, which could have housed, the day care centre, a doctor's surgery and a nursery with outdoor space using a covered terrace.

Many cities across the world do just that and it gives communities the services just where they need them.  The loss of the Day Care Centre was an outrage.
