Keep the Level green
An accompanying issue is a prospective bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a grant to refurbish the southern end of the Level based on its historical design. The council have suggested this will be lost if the skatepark remains where it is. It is true that the present skate-park is in a different position to that of the original play area but this seems a minor consideration compared with other changes proposed for the 1930's design. The green nature of the Level's northern end is a much older inheritance and is surely of equal or even greater value in this densely urban area. It should be preserved.
