The Waterside Community Association (WCA) is very disappointed that the private owners of the old quarry lakes have put the site on the market without first fully exploring a use for the community. The site has been used for decades by local dog walkers, fisherman and those that enjoy the natural environment. Local community groups have also played an important role in helping to maintain the site.
The WCA worked hard last year to pull together feedback from the community as to what they would like to see happen to the site. The vast majority wish to see the area remain a place of natural beauty for the community to enjoy.
The WCA are working with a variety of local organisations to try and find a way forward to keep the area accessible to the community. We would welcome any suggestions or offers of support. If you feel that you are able to help keep this site in community use or have any suggestions, the WCA would be pleased to hear from you via the feedback link below.
