Bute Park Twilight Vigil on Tuesday 24th March at 7pm

We're having a Twilight Vigil on Tuesday 24th March at 7pm to show our opposition to the Councils plans to develop our park.
We're meeting at the millenium bridge at 7pm (the red footbridge nearest the castle end of the park) or you can come find us in Dempseys at 6pm (Irish pub opposite the castle) and we can walk down together.
A number of reporters from the local press will be there so please come along, bring a candle, bring your friends and let the council know we don't approve of their 'developments'.
We look forward to seeing you there

I haven't been able to find any of the proposed plans. Could you share a link to anything online that describes the development?

I'm assuming from what I've read that the idea is to bulk up the small road bridge from the entrance off North Road (opposite College Rd), and widen a short stretch of road leading south.

I have to say, this isn't a particularly special area (There's already an ugly office block here) and it seem a lot better than bringing lorries through the whole park!
