**LEISURE LAKES LTD MANEUVERS TO CLOSE MOTOCROSS AND JET SKIING FACILITIES AT MERE BROW SITE**

It has come to my attention just this afternoon that Leisure Lakes Ltd have succeeded in having their outline planning application granted under West Lancashire Borough Council. Application Reference: 2017/0756/OUT

The decision was actually issued 11th July 2018, but I'm struggling to find any sort of public announcement on Leisure Lakes MX's Facebook page!

Their plans are to completely redevelop the site at The Gravel, Mere Brow, Tarleton, Preston, Lancashire, PR4 6JX. Which includes damning and saddening news for local motocross riders but also riders that come from far and wide to ride here and that have done for many years.

Their plans include the execution and removal of all motocross and even jet skiing activities on the site and the construction of several "floating chalets". After examining the documents further their reasons become clearer as to why they have made this decision but I feel they have gone the wrong way about improving their situation.

This is absolutely heart breaking to see and damning to the future to the sport we all know and love. Motocross tracks are being closed at an alarming rate and it will continue if we do not rally together and challenge these decisions.

What makes it worse is that this application was submitted July 19th 2017, and from my knowledge this has yet to be publicly announced to us riders and our community?

We didn't even get a chance to challenge this and voice our concerns as patrons of Leisure Lakes Ltd!!

Individuals who do not have the burning and undying passion for motocross will never understand why we love it so much. It is now down to us to fight our corner and preserve the future of motocross and it begins with actions such as this petition.

WE NEED TO SET A PRECEDENT!

Please sign and share this position with all whom you know love our sport and want to see it flourish in the UK for decades to come. 

Thank you!!
