A campaign Website “to save Puckpool for the people” has been set up.
Readers may remember that developers for the adjacent Harcourt Sands, revealed their plans for the site last month. They intend to build 100-150 houses on the site of the former holiday park.
Concerns for the future of Puckpool Park were raised after developers ZeroC announced, “We also want to bring to the public design workshop the challenge of Puckpool Park, next door to the Harcourt site, and the seafront ‘bridge’ into Ryde and Seaview.”
Confusion over challenges
Residents could not understand why there would be a “challenge” for the developer in relation to Puckpool Park and say that questions put to the developers during the public consultation failed to “remove worries about the future of the park”.
The campaign Website has some great detail about the history of the park and highlights concerns of those campaigning to ensure it remains “as a free, public access park for Isle of Wight residents and visitors alike”.
