It is a HUGE opportunity for you to create a wonderful and bold contemporary landscape and leisure facility for Londoners. People would travel to come here because it would have character and style – and we all love to spend time in pleasing landscapes.
It would also merit tons of press attention and would draw events organisers to the leisure facilities, because they would be distinctive.
Please take this opportunity whilst you have it.
Amazing industrial structures of our past. Surely they can be incorporated into plans for a new park and indeed be the feature. Have seen this done to spectacular effect in Seattle in the USA.
Can we see how many people have signed the petition anywhere? thanks
