Keep Southport Lord Street Red

This petition had 118 supporters

Work is due begin, Monday 18th September, on the controversial resurfacing of Lord Street. Currently Lord Street has an iconic red surface. Sefton Council plans to use a money-saving cheaper option to resurface the road in black.

If Southport Lord Street is resurfaced in black, this risks the loss of its heritage status and the right to apply for any restoration grants from the lottery heritage fund. Hence, a cheaper option now risks not only the status of Lord Street but the possibility of future funding for other projects such as the restoration and upkeep of its boulevards, walkways and veranda’s. This short-term cost-saving is going to cost us more in the long run.

Please join us in our fight against this decision.
