millfields orchard path destroyed

Back at the end of 2011, we did a posting on our opposition to Hackney Council's decision to build a path through the orchard on south millfields: millfields to lose its pastoral character Our view remains that Millfields is common land and building on it should be resisted.

A reminder of what we had:
 .... and what Hackney Council delivered:
 And this is the damage done by Council heavy vehicles treating the path as a road:
The interlocking panels of hexagonal cells which hold the gravel are in pieces and will need to be replaced. Extra gravel has been poured on top of the path over recent days in a clumsy attempt to hide the underlying damage. The heavy vehicles using the path maybe be compressing the roots of the nearby trees that the "low impact" path was supposed to safeguard.
