Save Cross Lane / School Lane Playing Fields

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!

We, the undersigned, petition the council to keep the land between the New Brighton to Liverpool railway line and Ashville Football Club, known locally as Cross Lane / School Lane playing fields as a designated urban greenspace.

We are trying to gain the support of local residents to ensure the council retain this area as local green space in order to:

* Protect this accessible public space and its continued use as an area for open air recreation.

* Reinstate the area back to its original use as sports pitches to facilitate more grass roots sports for the area’s children.

* Recognise the conservation value of the landscape and protect the wildlife that now inhabit the area following the decision to no longer maintain it as a sports recreation field.

* Stop any inappropriate development of the land that would impact its ability to act as a floodplain in keeping with the need to address the climate emergency that Wirral Borough Council has declared.
