Save the Greenie and Buttercup Fields started this petition to Merthyr Tydfil County Borough Council

We, the undersigned, petition the council to stop any proposed developments on the Greenie & Buttercup fields.  These greenspaces are important to the community and especially for the health and well-being of our young children and everyone else who currently use these spaces.  Greenspaces are a vital part of any community and the Council should be doing everything they possibly can to preserve these areas.

The Open Space Strategy dated June 2016 has three key themes and objectives.  These are derived from National, Regional and Local policies...

Health to improve the general health of the residents of the County Borough.

Environment to maintain, enhance and promote the ecological and environmental assets of the County Borough.

Economy to promote the economy and generation of wealth.

We also believe that the consultation was woefully inadequate with only 144 residents receiving letters out of 2 wards with approximately 10,000 residents.  We want the council to consult properly via the use of hard copy letters sent to residents throughout the 2 wards, Gurnos and Penydarren.  We also want another option to choose from, which does not include either the Greenie or Buttercup Fields, e.g. The existing Bishop Hedley High School site to include both Phase 1 and Phase 2.
