A campaign amongst local residents in the Pennington area of Leigh, where the proposed Leigh Sports Village will be situated, is gathering pace. Show your support for the Leigh Sports Village by sending a letter to the Wigan MBC Planning Department and help this dream become a reality.

Despite a poll in the Leigh Reporter being overwhelmingly in favour of the project, and the opinion poll on the official LSV website being 95% in favour, it is the letters to Wigan MBC which will make the difference, so your part in revitalising not only Leigh RLFC and Sporting Leigh Ltd, but also the whole of this fine old Lancashire town. Amazingly, the letters that have already been sent to WMBC are listed as being 50:50 in terms of in favour and against.

A sample letter can be downloaded from the official LSV website which should then be sent to:

Mr. Martin Kimber BA, Dip. TP, MRTPI, Director of Planning, Wigan MBC, Civic Buildings, New Market Street, WIGAN. WN1 1RP

Please show your support, every letter is vital.
