Support the development plans for Anselmians Rugby Club in Eastham, Wirral

This petition had 470 supporters

A planning application has been submitted to Wirral Council by Anselmians Rugby Club to redevelop the existing facilities on the existing site in Eastham Village. They are seeking permission to build 21 houses, a new clubhouse/youth club, a 150 place car/coach park, reposition their flood lights, alter the layout of their rugby pitches and erect ball catchment fencing. A new road is proposed off Eastham Village Road for the houses and a new entrance will be made to the clubhouse and coach/car park. 

The land in question will not change it's overall purpose and the housing development is a small price to pay for the much needed Rugby Club and community centre that will be created. 

We believe that given the lack of facilities for the youth of Eastham and probable decline of the rugby club as a result of this development not going ahead represents a 'very special circumstance' from a planning perspective. Anselmians rugby club has a long heritage of working with the local community and delivering positive outcomes for wirral residence including

  • getting young people into sport,
  • fighting the growing obesity epidemic nationally
  • providing a community hub for young people 

Eastham is a beautiful medieval village, one of the oldest in Wirral. The population  has been boosted by the influx of young families to the area that desperately need a community hub, this development will be ideal for residents in the local area. 

I ask for your support in signing this petition to drive forward the development and support the local community and future generations to thrive on the Wirral. 

You can also write or email the planning office with your support, quoting planning application:APP/17/00179.
