Save Ashby's Bath Grounds - Say "NO" to new threat of building, 2018

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!

Following withdrawal of a similar planning application in 2014, the owners of Ashby's Royal Hotel are, once again, threatening to build five large, 3 storey houses on the Ashby Bath Grounds as well as other developments in the Royal Hotel's grounds. They claim that all these developments are required to finance refurbishment of the hotel. We do not oppose in principle sympathetic developments on the hotel grounds but vigorously oppose any building on our much loved Bath Grounds, the green heart of Ashby.

We oppose all development on the Ashby de la Zouch Bath Grounds, except where it enhances recreational or sporting use.

We call on:

a)       The District Council to refuse any planning application that would reduce the recreational and sporting use of the Bath Grounds, in particular any proposal to build houses on the Bath Grounds;

b)       The Town Council to not surrender its lease for the Bath Grounds in order to allow a non-recreational or sporting use of the Bath Grounds, whatever the incentives offered by Oakland Hotels or other developers.

NB. To avoid repetition please don't sign this if you have already signed our written petition.
