The Future of Snibston

We the undersigned petition the Council to in the light of overwhelming public support for Snibston Discovery Park, honour its civic duty and continue to manage and fund this nationally important local heritage site and resource for learning.

1. Snibston Discovery Park, with its museum, century theatre and country park, is a major asset in N.W.Leicestershire, of local and national importance in terms of economic, social and cultural heritage.

2. The county council should continue to fund and invest to develop the whole of this site in recognition of its historical significance for Britain during the Industrial Revolution and its potential role in the economic regeneration of Coalville today.
