Give Rimrose Valley Country Park "Local Green Space" Special Protection
This petition had 4,390 supporters
Rimrose Valley Country Park has been of special importance to the local communities of Bootle, Litherland, Ford, Netherton, Thornton, Crosby and Waterloo for hundreds of years, and now our cherished green space is more important to the people than ever before with the plans for increased traffic, air and noise pollution generated by the Peel Ports docks expansion.
We stand together in defense of Rimrose Valley and we recognise that it may be now or never.
Rimrose Valley and the fresh air it generates is essential in providing the people who would otherwise be surrounded entirely by polluting traffic and industry to get away from it all; offering exercise, rest, relaxation and tranquillity as well as providing a sense of general well-being and positive state of body and mind.
Rimrose Valley is also of significant educational and recreational value, and it is extremely important that we protect the whole of Rimrose Valley for its diversity and richness of wildlife including the wetland areas of Local Biological Interest, Green Belt and Local Nature Reserve land, for the good of our children, for our communities and for future generations.
We are standing up for Rimrose Valley so that it will be designated as a “Local Green Space”, which is the legal recognition it deserves as a place of particular and special importance to our local communities. Rimrose Valley must not be harmed or built on in any way, as to do so will be very damaging to our communities, our health and our future.
