Petition to Ramsey Town Council to allow Ramsey Cricket Club a new access to Cricket Field

261 Signatures Goal: 1,000

Ramsey Cricket Club recently submitted a request to Ramsey Town Council to have a right of way over one of the Council Verges to create a new access to the Cricket Field and a new access to the proposed Development Site.


The reason that the access has to be moved is because the Cricket Club has received an offer from a property developer to construct 6 Flats on a small area of land owned by the Cricket Club behind the Football Club Spectator Stand.


Huntingdon District Council has already approved the plan and this was also supported by Ramsey Town Council.


The Cricket Club has had to sell this area for development to secure the financial future of the Cricket Club by allowing it to pay off Debts. These debts have been incurred since an arson attack on the old pavilion forced its demolition and then borrowing of funds to create a new pavilion in its place. This financial security of a small development would also allow the Cricket Club to renew the rental lease to Ramsey Town Football Club, thus providing them with a secure future also.


A debt free Ramsey Cricket Club means that, as a community sports club, all of their future revenue can be reinvested into improving their facilities, support their Junior Development Program and maybe one day produce another England Captain!


A new lease for the Ramsey Football Club means that they can proceed with plans to improve their club facilities.


In their wisdom Ramsey Town Council decided to deny access over their land, jeopardising not only the development project but also the futures of two of the community’s most prominent sports clubs. Ramsey Town Council claim their decision is in the interest of local residents despite the fact that these concerns were addressed by Huntingdon District Council during the planning application stage. The access is already in place and carries no cost to the community, we simply need access to cross it!


Please take the moment to sign this petition urging Ramsey Town Council to reverse their decision and allow Ramsey Cricket Club access over their land.
