When was the last time an area of 1.4 hectares of wood and meadow was created this close to Glasgow City Centre? The answer appears to be not since 1892, some 124 years ago!
There has been community gardens, resident gardens and allotments created but nothing like what we have here. We call the land a meadow and wood as that what it looks like and is used as. Here’s a list of nearby parks and when they were created: Ruchill Park 1892, Springburn Park 1892, Victoria Park 1886, Alexandra Park 1870 and Botanic Gardens 1817.
Why such a long time? Property developers and those that sell the land to them make alot of money from building on these pockets of land.
Lets make history and not let them get this piece!
Please sign and get 5 others you know to sign the petition. Thanks.
After the recent decision by Glasgow City Council Planning Committee, our emphasis has now changed. It’s now about persuading the Scottish Government to “call in” and reject the plans to build 90 residences on North Kelvin Meadow and The Children’s Wood by signing the petition.
The Scottish Ministers that will be making the decision are Alex Neil and Marco Biagi. This means our local MSP Sandra White is key to getting them to make the right decision and throw NCV Ltd planning application out.
If your on Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr then click on link below so we all put out a message at the same time i.e. a thunderclap and so get the petition noticed and a few more signatories. The message goes out on 29th February at 10am so obviously we need you to register before then.
What is Thunderclap?
Thunderclap is a tool that lets a message be heard when you and your friends say it together. Think of it as an “online flash mob.” Join a Thunderclap, and you and others will share the same message at the same time, spreading an idea through Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr that cannot be ignored.
What exactly am I agreeing to when I authorize my Facebook or Twitter account?
You’re allowing Thunderclap to share a single message on your behalf. This is only the case when you click the button on the campaign page to support with Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr. After the campaign is complete, we won’t post any additional messages.
Will you only post to my account, or to my friends’ accounts as well?
Just your feed. We won’t spam your friends; that wouldn’t be nice.
