More details from petition creator

Children will roll down the mound. The height & incline of the mound is dangerous & descends onto a concrete path on one side & a hedge with protruding concrete blocks on the other.

We won’t be able to observe our children. Once up there, they will be out of sight.

Children have safely played ball in this area as it’s set back from the road & the layout let parents keep visual contact with them & siblings in the playground. Young children will now have to play ball in an area that is too small & dangerously close to a road.

The area was used for community events, gatherings & activities which depended upon use of a large, flat area.

As the mound is unsuitable for ball games/picnics, everyone will be forced into the same small, flat area next to the playground.

The bowls users & adjoining neighbours’ sites may be overlooked affecting their privacy.

The new path at the bottom of the mound will force traffic along the adjoining neighbours’ gardens as people won’t navigate the mound.

By lowering the height of the mound & widening it, the area could remain flat achieving the council’s aim of cost effectively moving the dirt, whilst retaining its existing use for the community.
