The London Road Residents Associations Planning & Transport Group is currently working with them and the Friends of the Parks on the submissions to be made. Although Norbury Park Residents Association is not a member, the Group will consider trying to make the case for the Covington space, but it will need a lot of information from residents about what it ois know about it to justify it under the national criteria which governs inclusion on the proposed local list, including: (a) some history,  community views about its value and community uses.

This is not the first green space to be given to Brick by Brick to build on. See:
