I have objected - it's not the place for it in my view. What do you think?
It sounds like a money making venture for a private company in a public park, with wildlife, deer enclosure and local community activities (and lots of peace and quiet!) charging £25-£35 per person (in other current locations). It will increase footfall, traffic, litter, noise. In my view this outweighs the fun and games they advertise.
I saw the link in the local Streetlife Forum
Phase 1 standard Habitat Survey (used in the determination of suitability for the proposal - re wildlife/habitats)
Thanks for posting this, Heidi. You're right, it doesn't fit in that environment. The thing that made my blood boil the most was the way the organisation miss-represented the Alexandra Park CAAC's objections.
I just put un an objection and it's not showing up on the website. Has anyone else experienced this?
GoApe has been given go-ahead for their proposals HGY/2015/3141

In my view this is a private company making profits of our parks and charging ridiculous entrance fees that only some can afford. I don't agree with the intrusion in the natural landscape/habitat/influx of visitors/traffic/noise. I understand the need for local income etc but disagree with this one.
