NOGOE have released a 36 page report which makes the case against using historic Greenwich Park as the venue for London 2012's equestrian events. The detailed report sets out to describe the risks and practical difficulties, as they see it, of using the Royal Park for such an event.
The objections break down into four main points:
1 that it is potentially damaging for such an important site with its many ancient trees, archaeological remains and fragile ecology;
2 that not only will it be more expensive than alternative venues but it will leave no meaningful legacy from the very large financial and other economic costs incurred;
3 that the social and economic impact of closures of the Park and surrounding roads is out of all proportion;
4 that there are real doubts about the legality of some aspects of the proposals.
You can read the report for yourself on the NOGOE website.
This report follows hot on the heels that chamption eventer and 2012 medal hopeful, Zara Phillips, has also questioned the wisdom of Greenwich Park being an Olympic venue.
On a similar note, Darryl at the 853 blog has news of a public meeting on Wednesday 11th March to discuss issues surrounding the use of Greenwich Park for 2012.
