Fireworks At Alton Towers sign now

For many years now Alton Towers have held an annual 'Fireworks' weekend. Around the end of October each year the theme park would have a 30 minute firework display which was awesome and unforgetable.

But now with many complaints from the villagers in Alton, Alton Towers have been forced to stop the firwork displays all because of the noise.

Personally I find this really ridiculous because fireworks are suppose to make noises aren't they? This is just the village of Alton being silly because they do not like all of the traffic.

Here are some news reports regarding the problem all from BBC News all from last year:

1) Alton Towers Loses Noise Appeal: Alton Towers has been ordered to come up with ways to reduce noise levels.
The popular theme park has lost an appeal against a noise abatement order made at a private prosecution, brought by neighbouring residents in 2004.

Legal teams for both sides will now get together to see if a way to reduce noise levels from rides and displays can be agreed.

An Alton Towers spokesman said he hoped abatement order terms could be agreed as soon as possible.

One possible sticking point is the number of firework displays the park can put on.

In the original ruling the park was limited to one 30-minute display a year, but a judge has suggested this might be too harsh.

A final ruling will be made in September.

2) Fireworks Risk For Alton Towers: Alton Towers is pressing ahead with plans for three firework displays despite waiting for the outcome of an ongoing noise abatement case.
The Staffordshire park has been ordered to come up with ways of reducing noise, after losing an appeal against an abatement order brought by residents.

A park spokesman said it was taking a risk but was basing its decision on earlier comments made by a judge.

An adjudication on the noise abatement order will be made on 14 October.

In an earlier ruling, the park was limited to one 30-minute display a year, but a judge has since suggested this may be too harsh.

Traditionally, the park held five events at the end of October.

This year it is planning three for 28, 29 and 30 October.

General manager Russell Barnes said: "Whilst we recognise there is a risk involved in promoting these shows before the terms of the abatement order have been confirmed, we felt it was imperative we press ahead with our plans because they are key not only to the park but to the community."

All I can say is why can't people let us have fun? What is the world coming to? Many people from other countries come to see the show as well as to enjoy the rides at the theme park and now it is being spoilt.

Please sign this petition so we can hopefully sort something out so the fireworks can come back.

I am hoping to send this petition once we get many signatures to the owner of Alton Towers so they can then deal with it.
