Concern at loss of city green space


As parliamentary candidate for Cambridge, I think a lot about what our city should look like in ten, twenty or thirty years time. Continuing to reduce the amount of green space that people experience in their daily lives and which is available to enjoy is certainty not part of that vision.

That's why I've taken the step of writing to the City Council's Executive Councillor for Housing, Cllr Richard Johnson, to express my concern at the prospect of the council building over part of St Albans Recreation Ground in King's Hedges.

The council should be an agent for good when it comes to a healthy environment for us all to live in. This development seems to have too easily put those values aside.
