Manchester's historic Belle Vue Stadium is under threat from developers - Please sign the petition to help us fight the plans for demolition of this iconic and viable stadium.

The Belle Vue Greyhound Stadium opened in 1926, staging the first ever Greyhound race events in the UK. The birthplace of racing in this country is now under immediate threat from developers.

The stadium is the last remaining element of what was once the legendary Belle Vue area, that over the years has seen the famous Zoological Gardens and the Hyde Road stadium (which across several decades hosted world class Speedway and Stock Car Racing) both lost to previous development.

To this day, Belle Vue stadium continues as one of the UK’s most popular Greyhound venues as well as hosting very successfully, Stock Car Racing continuously now for over 20 years.

The planned demolition provides nothing as a leisure alternative within the area. This in a city famed for its sporting achievements and history.

This summer details of plans for redevelopment of the site emerged.  Over Christmas a formal application for close on 250 homes and apartments has been lodged with the city council for consideration.

In 2019 the stadium celebrates it’s 21st anniversary for Stock Car Racing since it's first meeting in 1999, with visitors expected from not only across the UK but internationally.

The campaign will seek to object to the planning and try and ensure that the stadium remains as a landmark to be enjoyed for years to come - it is a worrying trend that too many community venues are being allowed to be redeveloped.

The stadium is unique in the community, providing a home for motor sport and greyhound racing which will be almost impossible to replace.

We know what can be done, and we are up for the fight. Are you? Every voice literally does count. 

Please SIGN our petition to Save Belle Vue Stadium before it's too late.

Remember - when it’s gone, it’s gone for ever.
