The Liberal Democrat petition to protect the grounds at Conyngham Hall from Conservative development of the new Knaresborough leisure centre has reached over 1,000 signatures.
In just two weeks the Liberal Democrat ‘Hands Off Conyngham Hall Grounds’ has reached over 1,000 signatures.
Commenting, the campaign’s spokesperson, Matt Walker, said:
“This is a brilliant demonstration of support for the campaign!
“Conyngham Hall grounds have been an important community asset for so many and so long, especially during the pandemic. It has been the place where people needing to social distance have gone to meet their friends and loved ones — something we’re sure to see long after the pandemic is over.
“We should be investing in our cherished green space, not needlessly building on it. There are far better alternatives which ought to be explored, with Conyngham Hall grounds taken off the table entirely.
