When the Stockport LibDem councillors decided to develop a recreation ground, as I understand it they should have consulted the public and held a public inquiry if there were any objections under the Acquisition of Land Act 1981.  Obviously, they did nothing of the sort and every time I tried to raise the matter I was branded “vexatious”, and I still am.

This is how they treated recreation grounds they destroyed to build their bypass for votes (fourth row down on the right), with a newspaper announcement of their plans and the right to object.

No such protection for a recreation ground Stockport Council wanted to develop for the school.
