There is a 4 week trial run approved for a land train on Holy Island , the majority of residents do not want this.
As an islander I'm asking for your help to get this stopped, Holy Island is a unique place, beautiful, tranquil and spiritual to many others.
A land train would incur severe difficulties due to the high number of delivery vehicles including heavy duty articulated vehicle.
The size and length of the train would be prohibitive in many areas due to narrow streets bustling with visitors just wanting to enjoy the feel of Holy Island itself and challenging corners.
There are also businesses reliant on the passing trade from the car park, which would become virtually non -existent if the train was to transport visitors directly to the village , businesses within the village would also be affected as the train would not afford opportunity to browse the shops as they go.
The whole idea of a land train smacks of a holiday park and that is certainly not what it is.
I agree with all the above but for me also Holy Island is my home, always has been and it is not the place for a land train, I want visitors to come and enjoy the island for what it offers as itself.
Why do I care...... because its my home and I hope you all help me to get this stopped by signing
