Local residents are receiving a letter from their local Conservative Councillors. As with their local Conservative MP, no commitment to campaign to save the park, but some ‘pushing for a replacement’.
This response from a local resident says it all really.
“Just got this through the door. It is almost identical to the email we received from the councillors. However the last line is different and it tells me that they do not in any way want to help us keep the playground at this site. They say they will give us a replacement site but this is not what we want. Please, even if you have signed the paper petition, sign the online petition and keep writing complaints directly to Bexley Council.
We have clearly got their attention by what we have been doing so far but we need to now focus on complaining to the Council because we do not have the MP’s or councillors’ support.“
To tell your Councillors what you think (and why not tell them that your support for them in the next election is conditional on this).
