Sign our petition calling on North Somerset Council (NSC) to dredge the lake at the Lake Grounds to make it safer and cleaner for us all.
Many of us are alarmed to see the amount of mud in the lake during Portishead’s hot summers, shown in the picture below. The ducks and swans in the lake seemed even more concerned at their disappearing habitat.
Despite ongoing requests from Lib Dem Cllr Sue Mason that the lake be cleaned, NSC do not want to spend the money and so are saying that all we can do is wait for enough rain to fill the lake.
We see it as unacceptable that there is often more mud than water in the lake and demand that it is dredged, for the benefit of the people and the wildlife of Portishead. If you agree then make sure to sign our petition.
The previous Conservative Administration wouldn't do it while they were in charge, hopefully, this new administration will.
We are calling on North Somerset Council to dredge the lake at the Portishead Lake Grounds as we think the amount of mud is unacceptable and are concerned about its effect on the local wildlife. Sign here: http://www.nsomersetlibdems.org.uk/cleanourlake
