My bedroom is at the front of the house and across the street from my window there is parkland, so every morning when I wake up, I look out at trees and parkland instead of what could have been someones elses house. This morning it was windy and while I was lying in my bed watching the branches and leaves blowing around I was day dreaming. The council has told the local residents they have a six year plan to develop the area with garden beds, more trees and a bigger playground. Some of the area will be set aside for tennis courts and maybe a football field and exercise course. While I am looking forward to what this will bring to the now empty space I am also aware it will mean more traffic to this area. I'm hoping it will become a busy happy place.
