I live near the site and in all the years we have never been consulted on the use of it by anybody and this includes this so called action group. The new owners are the first people to even talk to us about it, and whatever they decide to do with it they are entitled to do so as they own it. As I understand the action group are Talking with the owners , so it sounds like they are playing games to try and persuade the owners to there agenda. I think it's shameful the way this Peter chap is going about creating mischief and instead should work with the owners to come up with a product we can all be proud of and stop playing stupid games

Couldn't agree more with Gary, Peter has been involved with Great Barr Hall for years now as he keeps reminding us and has achieved the square root of nothing in all that time. Well other than annoying a series of owners who have then ended up doing nothing with the site.

This lot have come along and have now dared to ask Joe Public what they think and all of a sudden Peter is trying to make out that they are going to turn it into Alton Towers!! Pull the other one Peter its got bells on!!
It's a joke that he thinks he speaks on behalf of everyone when I've NEVER EVER heard him ask anyone what they want out of it.(He's told us plenty of times what we think, but NEVER ASKED US!)

Do me a favour Peter, next time you tell me what I think, at least actually tell me that I think it first eh?

I have to say that I agree. I've seen the survey and there's no mention of Alton Towers or anything even remotely like it. I'd like to thank the owners for asking us what we think and I have offered my suggestions for the site but it was harder than I thought it would be to come up with an answer. I understand their position is a difficult one and don't envy them the task they've taken on but I do think that Peter should show a little more grace when dealing with people and realise that this might be our last chance to restore the lakes and woodland in our lifetimes.
I wish the owners the best, they seem genuine and I hope they do us proud.
