Joint Petition to Save Stanley Park Golf Course
This petition had 8,128 supporters
Blackpool Council propose to lease off the land and management of Blackpool Park Golf Club in Stanley Park, the only municipal golf resource in the area offering affordable golf to all residents across the Fylde. The proposal is to reduce the course to 9 holes on the west side and build yet another tourist attraction on the east side of the course, between Victoria Hospital and Salisbury Woodland Garden.
Our aim, as was Blackpool Council's in their Blackpool Local Plan (2001-2016, section 8.5), is "to maintain and improve open land and natural environments within the Borough through protecting and enhancing landscape quality and nature conservation value". This historic golf course has been cherished by thousands of Blackpool residents, golfers and non-golfers alike. To develop and build on this landscape would be sacrilege. It would have a devastating environmental impact and be detrimental to the health and wellbeing of the community it serves.
EVERYONE should care about this. Please sign up.
