Winchester is short of play areas already!

The Winchester City Council's Open Space Strategy 2012/13 has this information about available land for play in Winchester (PDF file - see top of page 106):

Adequacy of Land for Play and Sports (Hectares)

Local Plan Requirement for Play:30.00
Existing Area for Play:17.88

According to that Winchester is 12.12 Hectares short of land suitable for play!

If you haven't done so yet please sign our petition to save the parks in Abbotts Barton - and don't forget to share either! Thank you!
