I note with dismay that South Holland District Council, Corbo (Holland Market owner) and Spalding United Football Club would like to build yet another “shed” and car park on the field as they state this will benefit us all as a town and create more green space.
Since when have sheds and car parks meant green space? This field was bequeathed to the residents of Spalding in perpetuity, and to be used as a recreational space; something which is badly lacking in this town.
It was not bequeathed to the council, Corbo or the football club.
So show your metal. If you’re positive this is what everybody wants, the only fitting option is to hold a vote for the people of Spalding as the rightful owners and allow them to voice their opinion.
