West Kirby is renowned for its speed sailing potential and perfect flat water freestyle conditions. These same conditions are also perfect for beginners, offering lake style sailing, with ocean style constant winds.

All this is now under threat as redevelopment plans look set to limit access to the lake by significantly reducing the amount of parking available to watersports enthusiasts.

There has therefore been a petition set up to persuade the council to reconsider the current proposal and at a minimum retain the current number of parking spaces at this world class watersports venue.

Check out the petition at http://wkirbyml.epetitions.net./ and sign up to help the cause.
