Make the Sands Pub a Watersports Centre

We the undersigned petition the council to Make the Sands pub a watersports centre. Renovate Ainsdale beach. For locals and tourists.

There is a growing community in Southport for kite surfing, with Ainsdale actually recognised with a kite zone. Attracting people increasingly, along side SUP (stand up paddle) boarding, kayaking, There is also a huge amount of people who walk their dogs, bird watch, and just come along for the scenery. In all conditions. The council has left the beach area abandoned and looking in severe disrepair with two listed buildings becoming an eyesore to tourist and locals alike.
The area facilitated to make any contact with the council to get permits etc is an absolute disgrace. This could all be done from one place.
Having a cafe on site would keep people cozy in the winter and keep money coming in, with changing rooms for permit holders or people trying to learn something new.
I know enough instructors to get started straight away. I have a watch manager at the fire service ready to do a risk assessment on the proposed facility.
Surely the council would have made enough money from parking on the beach last year to invest it back into the community and revitalize the beautiful Ainsdale beach.
Promoting beach cleans in the community, plastic awareness, the effects of our footprints.
Volley ball, outside all weather gyms like at council parks,
