Save Peterborough Embankment

We the undersigned petition the council to Retain the Peterborough Embankment as public parkland

With the increasing population of Peterborough the retention of the valuable green spaces we have becomes ever more important, especially within the city centre, which is rapidly turning into a concrete jungle.This embankment has been neglected for years by our council and lack of facilities presently restricts its use. Visiting events that bring facilities with them see fantastic attendances into the thousands and shows that there is great potential if properly managed.
The value this area brings to the public is immeasurable as space of reflection and unity and it also serves as protection in the way of flood defences,and acts as part of a wildlife corridor.To allow the construction of a stadium on a huge part of this site would be short sighted and for commercial gain at the expense of the whole of Peterborough, with the adjacent university buildings that will further encroach upon this site there will be very little public green space left.

This ePetition runs from 11/10/2021 to 01/01/2022.
