Save the Multi Use Games Area next to the adventure playground from becoming a community centre and new homes.

Lewisham Homes in partnership with Lewisham Council are wanting to relocate a local community centre so that they can build new homes. Their preferred location for the community centre and flats is the sports facility on Queens road next to the Adventure Playground. 

If it goes ahead on the Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) then the local community will loose a valuable resource. There's a lack of accessible sports facilities in the immediate area and this will have a negative impact for people who want to participate in sport and fitness activities. Furthermore this will also increase anti-social behaviour and crime locally for both adults and young people. 

There are other options available that have been brought up at the consultation meetings, so we would want Lewisham Homes and Lewisham council to choose an option that does not put the MUGA and the community at risk.
