Stop the sale of Quibell Park Field

This petition had 2,389 supporters


North Lincolnshire Council seem to be intent on selling off any piece of Scunthorpe green space they can get their hands on.


Despite various objections, Quibell Park Field, referred to as the land off Dartmouth Road, was designated as a contingency site for housing in 2016, but we were told it would not be used if the Lincolnshire Lakes project went ahead. 

 
We understand this exciting development is going ahead yet the land off Dartmouth Road has been put up for sale with no consultation whatsoever with local residents.

 
This field has been used for football, school sports, cross country races, as well as a dog show and other events for decades; most recently the North Lincs Half Marathon and the Tour of Britain cycle race. It is, just as importantly, also used for informal community leisure activities and provides a safe place for children to play.

 
Our local MP Nic Dakin and Scunthorpe Councillors are behind us in resisting this attempt to destroy our much-loved community green space.
