Save Cardiff's Central Parklands sign now

We, the undersigned, wish to express our opposition to the proposal (application 5/1777/W) for "a new indoor arena and ground redevelopment (including pavilion, grandstand, riverside stand, Cathedral Road stand and media centre" in the Sophia Gardens area of Cardiff's central parklands.

Our principal objections are:
- The central parklands include "the richest urban park for trees in the world" (according to Dr. Owen Johnston of the Tree Register), are the only urban parklands in Britain in which all three of our native woodpecker species can be found, are a habitat for diverse wildlife, and surround one of the best salmon rivers in Britain. They are of local, national and international importance and must be protected
- The central parklands were gifted to the people of Cardiff and no part of them should be surrendered for development
- The central parklands are a unique part of Cardiff's heritage and distinctive character and should be treasured as such
- The development has significant traffic and parking implications for the parklands as a whole that will have a substantial negative effect on the Sophia Gardens/Pontcanna Fields area
- The development will cause significant environmental damage to the parklands as a whole and Sophia Gardens/Pontcanna Fields in particular

    It is an erosion of our parklands and environment. Also as a member of the sports centre parking is already difficult - Not against ice rink/cricket just not in our parklands, move down the Bay

    I always take visitors to Cardiff to our wonderful parks and they are always amazed at the sheer size and diversity of flora and fauna that is almost literally on my doorstep. PLEASE help keep it that way and make future generations of visitors envious of
