Stop development on Bidston Hill

Stephen Pickles Bidston, United Kingdom

Bidston Hill is under threat.
The Natural Environment Research Council are on the verge of selling the leasehold of the site of the former Joseph Proudman Building on Bidston Hill to a developer. The developer has entered into discussions with Wirral Council, who own the freehold of the land.
The land is within the curtilage of the Grade-II listed perimeter wall which encloses Bidston Observatory and Bidston Lighthouse, also Grade-II listed.
We believe that a new development on the Proudman land would:
irreversibly diminish the heritage value of the entire site - the Observatory, Lighthouse and perimeter wall;
undermine the re-invention of Bidston Observatory as an artistic research centre and museum, and Bidston Lighthouse as a visitor centre;
pave the way for further undesirable developments on Bidston Hill.
Instead, we want to see the land used for open air events for the enjoyment of the community and the amenity of visitors to Bidston Hill, Lighthouse and Observatory.
We are opposed to any new development on this land and urge Wirral Council and the Natural Environment Research Council to take whatever steps they can to see the land used for the amenity of visitors to Bidston Hill, Bidston Lighthouse and Bidston Observatory.
More information about this petition is available on our campaign website.
This petition will be delivered to:
Wirral council
Natural Environment Research Council

Surely it's better for the site to be put to use than to let it degrade or be vandalised?

Its an empty site, now grassed over.

There is a local plan to buy the site and convert it to be used for, plays, concerts and talks to benefit all.

Magenta who were the preferred bidder to build houses on this land have now pulled out.
