Save Bolton's green park space - Stop Leverhulme 'Car' Park destruction and Cycle Track

This petition made change with 734 supporters!

After this project recently failed in another local location, Bolton Council has now continued by approving the large tarmac cycle track (1km approx) and large car park (40 cars) on one of the few green spaces left for the people of Breightmet, Darcy Lever and Tonge.

The local people, myself included do not want this intrusive track that will ruin this much loved space used by dog walkers, cyclists, rounders teams, footballers and people of all ages who want to sit and enjoy some green space, among the estates and roads.

I call on Bolton Council to respect its residents and put a stop to what will become a disused eyesore within 6 months with anti social behaviour, broken glass and graffiti. Look at the run down state of existing local basketball courts, the wooden play area (set on fire), recent signs put up for trails (bent and twisted). Leverhulme park already has enough car parks and is a park, lets not turn it into some industrial estate type location with numerous fenced off facilities, with little green space for the people.

Lord Leverhulme left this land for the people of Bolton to enjoy freely and with open access, fences and locked gates does not achieve this and breaches his covenant.

Please find a location that can be regenerated and already is brown field or derelict for this great opportunity for Bolton!
