Cllr Mark Lowry, Labour's Finance member on Plymouth City Council, has today confirmed that the City Council will sell the old tennis courts in Collings Park to the residents association. This is a huge victory for local residents and one that your local Labour team supported.
Well done to everyone who helped win this campaign
Labour's Parliamentary Candidate for Plymouth Sutton and Devonport, which includes Collings Park, had met with local residents and backed their campaign to buy the tennis courts to turn them into a community garden.
"What was most impressive about this campaign was how the residents had come together with one voice and offered a really compelling alternative vision for the site. We need more homes, but this wasn't the right site for new housing. I'm really excited that local residents now have the chance to buy the old tennis courts. Thank you to the Labour Council for listening to residents and a huge well done to everyone involved in the Collings Park Residents Association."
