Outrage over new threat to Panshanger Park

Protest has erupted over plans to radically reshape Panshanger Park, threatening its historic design and possibly wildlife.
Quarrying company Tarmac, which owns the park where it has worked for many years, has recently revealed that it wants to dig for gravel immediately south of the lake known as The Browadwater.
The effect would be a permanent enlargement of The Broadwater by linking it to an existing artificial lagoon.
Critics say the scheme, which can be implemented under existing planning permission, would destroy the design of the famous landscape architect Humphry Repton.
