Protect Edgeley Park
This petition made change with 4,499 supporters!
On June 19th Stockport MBC published a notice of a property purchase.
The reason for urgency states: " The matter is urgent because the sale of the property is operating to a timetable outside of the control of the Council and the deadline by which an unconditional offer must be made is prior to the next programmed meeting. The reason that the decision cannot reasonably be delayed is that if the Council cannot make an unconditional offer, the property will be sold to another party and this is directly against the social and economic interests of the borough of Stockport, and potentially the community in which the property is situated."
The Manchester Evening News linked this potential purchase to Stockport County football club's home ground, Edgeley Park, on June 20th highlighting the extraordinary meeting of the Council's Executive to be held on Wednesday 24th June.
We call on Stockport Council to do everything in their power to stop the third party 'developers' from gaining ownership, even if it means purchasing the ground themselves. The club is a community asset and it should not be left at the hands of 'developers' who have the intention of removing SCFC from their home and knocking down the ground.
This petition is a message to all councillors that the people of Stockport will not stand by and watch one of the towns most iconic landmarks become rubble. Edgeley Park = Stockport County
