A petition has been launched to help make the Isles of Scilly helicopter service a reality.
Alongside the overwhelming show of support for this project since the announcement of the Judicial Review, people have been asking how they can help ensure this project becomes a reality.
An island resident has now set up a petition, calling for the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group to withdraw their Judicial Review into the Penzance Heliport project.
The wording of the petition is:
We, the residents, visitors and friends of the Isles of Scilly, object to the actions of the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group in seeking to deny us a helicopter service from Penzance.
Penzance is the only logical site as it suffers less from low cloud and fog than Land’s End, is close to transport links and has existing tourist facilities.
We demand that the Directors of the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group put islanders first and cease their attempts to prevent a new helicopter service from Penzance.
The Judicial Review can be rejected if the judge does not believe there is a justifiable case. This petition will demonstrate that islanders, visitors and friends of the Isles of Scilly need this additional lifeline.
We would urge everyone who supports the reintroduction of this vital service to please make your feelings known. Signing takes less than one minute and will make a difference.
