The petition was objecting to the enclosure of the field next to
Longthorpe Primary School and sought to continue shared use of the
open access green space by the school and local inhabitants.
Response to the Petition
The Council's Group Manager
Development Management responded to Mr David Worth stating
that the proposal to fence off
part of the shared open space / school playing field formed
part of a planning application that also sought to build new
classrooms at the school. Given the level of public interest in the
fencing off of the shared open space / school playing field, the
decision was made to remove this from the proposals. If a new
application is made for the fencing off, then this
will be publicised.
