The whole question of The Park is well known in OSM circles...

Jerry will probably be along in a bit to give you chapter and verse on 
the question - as I recall there was some sort of planning enquiry 
relating to the question of rights of way there to which he and possibly 
some other OSMers gave evidence.

Certainly in general we have a particularly active community in the 
Nottingham area so it's always worth talking to them about any local issues.
