Aughton Bowling Green Conserved From Developers

The beady eyes of grasping land developers looking at prime sites need look no longer at the Cockbeck Bowling Club  green [click pics to enlarge] as it was formally protected this week by inclusion in the Granville Park Conservation Area (GPCA) by the WLBC Cabinet and the Planning Portfolio Holder Cllr John Hodson. Local residents were consulted about changes to the GPCA, and one resident addressed the Cabinet about it, leading to the motion that “The Granville Park Conservation Area boundary be formally extended to include the Cockbeck Tavern its Car Park and Bowling Green”. As for the whole area it is worth looking at the history ranging from Victorian  to Edwardian  and recent carbuncular  developments. Not to mention the mandatory animals .
