Thank you for showing an interest in our campaign to Save Rimrose Valley Country Park,
the largest park of its kind in Liverpool.
Liverpool has some renowned parks, but unlike its more celebrated counterparts, Rimrose Valley is very much a hidden gem.
It provides clean air and green space to the surrounding communities in what is a heavily urbanised and polluted part of Sefton. It is home to a wide range of wildlife, including protected species such as barn owls, bats and water voles.
Its future is under threat.
We are fighting Highways England’s plans to build a motorway right through our park. This Government-led, publicly funded project is being delivered for the benefit of Peel Ports, who own and operate the Port of Liverpool. No, proper thought has been given to the infrastructure required to support the ever-increasing volume of HGVs travelling to and from the newly expanded Port.
Our campaign is calling for better, non-road alternatives to the movement of freight which remove HGVs from roads through residential areas and protects this vital community asset.
