Rt Hon David Evennett, MP for Bexleyheath and Crayford, has welcomed the decision taken by Bexley Council last night (30 June) to not proceed with the sale of the Old Manor Way Playground in Barnehurst.
It was one of a number of places originally proposed for disposal by the Council, however, it will be removed from this list.
Mr Evennett said “I am delighted that Old Manor Way Playground will not be sold. I met with constituents at the Playground to support their campaign to save it and made strong representations to the Council urging them not to proceed with the sale. Given the need for safe places for children to play and exercise, this is the right decision.”
