A park for the people
Bradford Metropolitan District Council

The suggestion is that the plot be covered over so that the space is flat and the car park beneath can be used. The flat space above, we believe should then be landscaped and made into suitable parkland by Bradford Parks and Gardens department. This means that the investment be left behind but it also means that the money designated for the City park near centenary sq be put to better use for a space that needs it more.
A park space in this city centre would cut down dramatically on the need for investment in a new development as there would be little need for new land works and the funds needed to encourage business into the city centre would be greatly reduced as there are already many vacant buildings to be moved into. it would also reduce investment into the current proposed city park because there would be no need to knock down any buildings or tear up any already functioning land. This means a lose to some investors but we suggest that this fact should be ignored and the wishes of the citizens be honoured instead.
