Re the proposals for the Cinder Track (Scarborough News, June 8).

As usual nothing is sacred, and nothing is spared, it is all up for grabs.

The Cinder Track is another much loved and cherished local asset, it belongs to the people.

The public love its leafy, enclosed gullies and rich flora and fauna which forms part of a much needed wildlife corridor along the rugged coast line.

We the public have every right to question any proposal that will have very debatable consequences.

Nature has slowly reclaimed this track since the 1960s, so why all of a sudden decide everything must change and undo that which nature has reclaimed over decades, that has become the much loved local amenity it is.

So we have a valid battle to fight and there are voices to be heard, and I urge people who care about such things to sign the petition against this proposal. We must protect what we value because when it’s gone it’s gone.
