This is a petition to SAVE EXETER SKI SLOPE

Exeter City Council, our landlords, were proposing to sell our volunteer-built ski slope site and surrounding green space for housing.

what's happened?

In a significant breakthrough, the Council’s Scrutiny Committee agreed on 31st January to amend the recommendation, and to remove the ski slope land from the sale, recognising the huge value of this community-run asset. But the Executive of the Council meets on 12th February and the full council on 26th February,we need them to honour this recommendation, because it is non-binding. We remain in jeopardy and the support of all snowsports enthusiasts, everywhere, is vital to our future.

Who are we?

We are a members run, 50 year old, snowsports club in Exeter, Devon, UK. focussed on accessibility for all, with a successful race team and a thriving Adaptive section including medallists at the Special Olympics. Our disabled skiers gain huge physical and mental wellbeing from skiing- for many, it is the only physical activity they can enjoy. The nearest equivalent Adaptive facility is over 100 miles away. 40 to 50 young people attend the kids club each week, its somewhere you can come and enjoy an outdoor activity with your whole family, grandparents to 4 year olds!!!

If you live in the city of Exeter please sign our epetition on the city council website, . Join our 'Exeter Ski Club - Members and Friends’ Facebook group, for a link and to find out in February whether the Council respects the recommendation

What do we want?

WE CALL ON THE EXECUTIVE AND THE FULL EXETER CITY COUNCIL TO RESPECT THE RECOMMENDATION OF THE PLACE SCRUNITY COMMITTEE on 31 January 2019. with reference to 2.1a of the Recommendation, which now states: “To sell the Clifton Hill site (excluding the ski slope) for a mixed residential development……... to generate the best value for……..''

Why do we want it?

if the council accept this report it will leave this self sustaining fully inclusive sports and leisure club with its ability to continue to operate.

If they sell the land NO MORE SKIING in Exeter. because It is unlikely they will find us a new site and give us a pot of money to relocate!

Many thanks indeed for all your support
