Protect our last open space in Nanpantan

We the undersigned petition the council to 1. Recognize that the Leconfield Road open space be protected for the wellbeing of residents and to safeguard biodiversity. 2. Work with the Nanpantan community to protect this important open space for the long term.

For 50 years, the open space at Leconfield Road has provided our community with a place to walk, run, exercise dogs and for children to sledge. It gives residents an opportunity to stop, breathe and take in the unique long views over Loughborough. It is a site of ecological importance. Abundant wildlife lives here, forages here or just passes through between neighbouring Burleigh Wood and the Outwoods. Its special character and ancient uplands that are part of Charnwood Forest need to be preserved and celebrated.

That the open space is dear to our hearts was demonstrated by our recent protest that attracted more than 250 residents.

We expect the Council to follow its Corporate Strategy that pledges to look after our environment for future generations, care for our communities and improve our open space.
