Save Whitchurch Tennis Club, Cardiff
Petition to save Whitchurch Tennis Club in Cardiff. The club is under threat from development as the current lease will expire 31 Dec 2019 with no offer or communication about a lease extension.
The club has provided a valued facility for the local community for over 100 years with the last 70 years from the current site, including to local schools.
We are asking for people to sign the petition to show support for the continuation of the tennis club on its current site and to oppose any change of use of the land for a purpose other than sports and recreation facilities.
Thank you for your support.
To get clarity on the position with the lease, at the beginning of January the club served a statutory notice on the landlords under the Landlord and Tenant Act, formally requesting a new tenancy. The landlords have 2 months to respond. We will therefore know by the beginning of March whether the landlords intend to grant a new lease and, if they do not, whether their stated intention is to develop the site.
