“Say No to the New Build YWT’s New Visitor Centre” #keepspurnwild
Spurn is an are of natural beauty, please protect this national and unique treasure for ALL of us to enjoy – visitors, residents and future generations.
The YWT should use their existing visitor centre ‘the Blue Bell Visitor Centre’ which was given to them NOT a new-build!
Why would you wish to spoil the fantastic view down the peninsula with a 2 store building over six and a half metres tall and a large car park?
Spurn Bird Observatorry publicly announce their strong opposition to the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s plans. A strong statement that the proposed visitor centre is in totally the wrong location from a conservation, recreational disturbance & bird welfare point of view.
To sign the ipetition objecting to the proposal go to GAZPICSVIEW.WORDPRESS.COM
