Bexley Wildlife website reveals that Bexley council expects to sell its 27 open spaces for £10 million.
It’s quite a lot of money, Bexley only collects about £100 million from tax payers, but they are not planning to reduce council tax, far from it, their stated aim is to spend the money on maintaining the remaining parks.
What’s going to happen when they have spent it all? Are the parks going to be picked off one by one to pay for the others? That way lies catastrophe, except for enthusiasts for concrete jungles. But the Conservatives 200,000 new homes a year have got to go somewhere.
