"A gimme, but for us let's keep working on "good routes for walking and cycling". I don't think they can get parking and roads in to make car dependency, so that's a gimme as well. The planners and developers will need input…"

"Hmmm, it's all weird and I really wouldn't worry about it that much. You would think residents would tolerate children kindly. No, wait ... "Get of my grass!""

"it is weird because it seems even children under the age of 12 cannot ride the path so it's not a footpath ? (reliable source)"

"yes the timing seems calculated -instead of venting against the gov & housing commission they(the powers to be) may have engineered a softer target"
