Good luck with this campaign!
On 31 March I climbed onto the back of a truck, in a high wind, to deliver a speech to the assembled crowd of over 100 people. My message was that it was time that Panshanger Park, between Welwyn Garden City and Hertford in Hertfordshire, was returned to the people.
The 900-acre grade II*-listed park and garden should by now be largely open to the public. A legal agreement for delivery of a country park was signed in January 1979: this allowed the owner, Lafarge Tarmac, to take minerals in exchange for a country park to be opened progressively from 1989. But so far only about a third is accessible, and that only occurred a year ago. Hertfordshire County Council is responsible for holding the company to account, but has allowed it to procrastinate.
