Act now to save at­trac­tive spa­ces

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION - FRANK RHODES Hill­man Close Uxbridge

IT was most dis­turb­ing to read in your edi­tion of Novem­ber 11th that HS2 plans were to se­ri­ously im­pact on the Site of Spe­cial Sci­en­tific In­ter­est at Frays Mead­ows, Uxbridge.

I am also very dis­turbed that HS2 plans, which are not well pub­li­cised, will prob­a­bly also re­sult in the clo­sure of Ruislip Golf Course, Uxbridge Golf Course (Harefield Place) and the Coun­cil Out­door Ac­tiv­i­ties Cen­tre in Harvil Road, Harefield, amongst other fa­cil­i­ties.

Th­ese valu­able and at­trac­tive fa­cil­i­ties must be pro­tected by all means pos­si­ble for the use of fu­ture gen­er­a­tions. HS2 would bring no ad­van­tages to Hilling­don and few if any for the na­tion.

The Coun­cil should be lob­bied to con­tinue its ef­forts to pro­tect our valu­able ameni­ties and to rep­re­sent this point of view with ev­ery means at its dis­posal.

Ac­tion now is es­sen­tial or it will be too late.
