I repeat, there is almost nothing for young people to do locally.

We need to stop labelling them in such a negative way. To quote a previous comment, children are described as "lurking around unsupervised"! It sounds like a sentence lifted from the Daily Mail.

Honestly, they're fine. Talk to one, you may be surprised.

We seem to want a world where kids have the opportunity to develop and play outdoors but not in my back yard thank you very much.

I'm afraid that attitude is unsustainable and I repeat my point - green spaces, whether Green Belt or not - should be for the enjoyment of everyone.

I welcome the proposals and I welcome the proposed farm adjacent to Totteridge Academy - both great projects to get young people outside and 'lurking' to their heart's content.
