An 1866 legal loophole might be the last bullet in the NOGOE protesters’ arsenal, hoping to shoot down plans to stage equestrian events in Greenwich Park. The act against enclosures on ‘metropolitan commons’ is to be invoked for Blackheath’s Circus Field which adjoins the park and would be used for logistics at the events. NOGOE will lodge the objection with Greenwich Council but as LOCOG point out, Circus Field is used for other events; the circus, for instance, with no objections being raised to its ‘enclosure’. The formal consultation is over but you can still have your say via the Greenwich 2012 website. (Image / Greenwich Park in the snow by captainmcdan
