Some 20 residents feel it is OK to put their NIMBYism above the needs of local kids and have objected to the planning application despite the fact there will be no new structures, no loss of open space.
There were only two objections to the road, but this group of self interested spoilers are objecting to a football pitch, these are the same people who let their dogs crap all over the existing pitch or their kids ride their bikes on it.
One of them a so called member of the club has even lied about the club, accusing the kids of using foul language.
They have lied in their newspaper interviews and there is now a good chance the youth of Canvey Island and all those who visit the ground will lose this pitch. There are not enough football pitches for kids in Essex.
Please contact Castlepoint council
firstname.lastname@example.org tell them you support the planning application ref CPT/174/09/FUL.
Say your bit for children.
The children of Canvey need you.
