Quarry Recreation Ground – Petition against car-parking at the new Pavilion

To members/supporters of Friends of Quarry

You are probably aware that the City Council intends to demolish the old sports pavilion at Quarry recreation ground, and build a new one. Details of the plans can be seen on the Council’s websitehttp://public.oxford.gov.uk/online-applications/   reference 16/00002/CT3. The website has a facility for you to comment on the plans, should you wish to do so. The deadline for comments is 13 March. Note, however, the website is out of action, for maintenance, until Monday 7 March.

You may also be interested to know that a local resident has organised a petition against car parking spaces at the new pavilion. See https://www.change.org/p/oxford-city-council-no-car-park-at-margaret-road-recreation-ground  The Friends of Quarry committee has sympathy with this view: it is not clear that there is a need for parking, there are traffic safety issues and it would be good to have an attractive public space in front of the pavilion. On the other hand the provision of two disabled parking spaces would be beneficial (provided not just for pavilion users but park users generally).

Many thanks
