1. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to create a fine green space for urban wildlife and a place for people to enjoy it and to meet; play; relax and contemplate in peace, away from bustle and noise.
2. It will add back into this area so lacking in public green space that lost when Garner`s Hill Park and Collin Street Rooftop Nature Reserve were recently built on.
3. It will set another jewel into the Green Necklace, the long standing ambition of the City Council to make Nottingham a garden city having a joined up network of parks, nature reserves and greenways already much accomplished. At the same time, it will fill the gap in the extensive Inclosure network to north and south of the centre not possible to establish here when it was laid out after 1845.
4. For the first time in 200 years it will open an excellent vista of the Castle from a public open space, particularly for those come to visit it by train tram or bus, giving them a taster of a delightful day ahead, or a setting to reflect on a good day spent.
