Copied from Facts
Bristol City Council decided behind closed doors to close Baltic Wharf campsite and use the land for a school.
The local traders didn't know anything about it until the decision had been made.
Know they now the traders who rely on tourism are extremely angry, particularly Bristol Ferries (who have a ferry stop there) and SS. Britannia both of whom say that say they rely on the campsite for their 'bread and butter' during the winter. A point that been totally disregarded by the council.
They only need 3600 signatures on their petition to force the council to have an open meeting about it.
It has enabled Bristol Ferries too keep running during the winter and therefore keep their employees on.
Its a great campsite and will be a great loss to camping if it is allowed to close
So please can you sign the petition below and send on to other forums etc you belong to.
This is an email from Lou Phillips of Bristol Ferries who has been arranging the petition. (please post on here if it isn't working so I can tell her).
