Save Lupset Greenfields Group
Plan to change the playing fields to a Town Green
Why we are asking for the playing fields to be changed into a town green:- 
* Provide major benefits to the local residents - health, well-being, enjoyment etc 
* No affect on existing infrastructure - trees stay where they are etc
* Area already used to local residents for over 20 years - estimate well over a thousand uses per month 
* The town green area is accessible, less than a few hundred yard, to local residents in Snapethorpe/Lupset 
* Safe play area for children and families 
* There are no other town green areas, less than a few hundred yards, for local residents in Snapethorpe/Lupset 
* The area is not really changing use as it is already a playing field
* The area can be used for a large number of sports and leisure activities, e.g. picnics, walks, nature trails, bonfires, fireworks, Easter egg hunts etc 
* The area is also fully accessible by the school 
* Minimal cost to make the area into a town green 
* Good access - entrances via Airedale Heights, Dacre Field, St Georges Road and from Broadway (through the site of the Redoubt building) 
* As its used for sports events then should have changing facilities - can be provided on the site of the Redoubt building 
* For visiting teams car park can be provided on site of Redoubt building 
* Meets the National/Council's policies:-
- provide health and recreation benefits to people living and working nearby
- have an ecological value and contribute to green infrastructure
- being an important part of the landscape and setting of built development
- for the provision of recreational facilities and open space
- retain or enhance existing recreational and amenity assets, or lead to the provision of additional high quality assets.
