Following a request from our local community, the Trustees of Bushey Manor Field are proposing to fence off a small area of the field which will be dog free to create a clean, safe, green area for children to play and adults to enjoy.  Some people have objected to this proposal.  Most dog owners are responsible and control and clean up after their dogs but there are those who don't which spoils the field for everyone.  Many families don't use the field due to the amount of dog poo there.  This proposed area would allow more people to enjoy the field.  There would still be plenty of space for dogs but a clean, safe space too.  The Trust are intending to plant hedges alongside the fence which over time will soften and hide it from view.

This proposal is not 'anti dog', not about creating an 'us and them' environment, but about giving our community, especially our children, a beautiful green space which is clean and safe.  Not every family in Bushey is lucky enough to have a garden.  Yes, we have some beautiful parks in the area but surely we can share local space so our children can play closer to home? 

There really is no hidden agenda - just a sensible proposal to meet the needs of the whole community.  Have a look at the plans at www.busheymanorfield.org and sign this petition if you are in support.  Thank you.
