Churchdown Parish Council wants to have Churchdown Park designated as a Field in Trust as part of a national campaign to protect the long term future of parks and playing fields in  celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. In order to participate the applicants must either own the land or have a lease of at least 99 years. The Parish Council has a lease on Churchdown Park which has only 15 years left to run. The Council has approached the owners - Gloucester City Council and Cheltenham Borough Councils - to extend the lease or purchase the Freehold of the land. This request has been refused and the Parish Council has been informed by these Authorities that they ‘wish to keep their options open for the longer term’. The Parish Council feels that this is unacceptable.

There is a petition at the Parish Council Offices, Churchdown Park, Parton Road, so please come in to sign it if you can. Once we have 1,000 signatures it can be presented to Gloucester City and Cheltenham Borough to show that we are serious about protecting our park. If you can't come in, please sign the online ipetition as this will also help us.
