LETTER TO THE BIRMINGHAM POST Sir Having been involved, with many others, in long and successful campaigns to resist building on Handsworth Park and Black Patch Park in Smethwick, I’m vexed the government is pressurising Birmingham to surrender to housing, the parks, playing fields and allotments that should complement such homes, rather than being lost to them. If, under pressure from central government, we lose the plot on the stewardship of our urban green spaces, we will see our children living out their days in the cracks between the concrete we’ve laid over some of Birmingham’s most beautiful places. Yours etc., Simon Baddeley
