The principle of flogging city green spaces was always wrong - we need more green spaces not fewer! What's happened in practice has added insult to injury - the council has wasted time, wasted money and badly misdirected their efforts when they have a lot of things on their plate. This situation was on the cards from the start and I remember repeatedly saying so from the earliest opportunity. Someone should do a study on how often and to what extent Bristol City Council shows this pattern of behaviour across the range of policy.
