So, Mr I Tonks (Letters, March 15) thinks everyone should be able to enjoy the pond at Falmer without a stadium violating their peaceful lives.

Like many others, I wanted to park and watch the ducks and other wildfowl but was unable to because the whole area was surrounded by the parked cars of university staff and students.

This is a daily occurrence and has thoroughly spoilt the pleasure for so many wanting to park for an hour or so.

Perhaps the stadium, with adequate parking, might give Falmer back to its residents for them and others to enjoy.
