Aside from the orgy of residential development grabbing land and destroying trees in Hackney there is now a huge rush to build sports facilities over large areas of park land including SINC (Sites of Importance for Nature Conservation) land of ecological significance.
Hackney Marshes - large sports building on south of mainb marsh, sports hub on north of main marsh, 3 cricket ptiches on main marhs (destroying Hackney'smost valauble meadow and scrub).
Mabley Green - all weather footballpitches
Spring Hill - sports pavillion
London Fields - MUGA
Hackney Downs - tennis courts, changing rooms and a MUGA (multi use games area) - Approved
If you don't want more of your parks built on and reserved for sports get involved in the campaigns to protect green space and biodiversity in Hackney.
