The future of Brentwood Leisure Park hangs in the balance as the council decides whether to allow the landowner to tear down the existing buildings and replace them with executive homes.
A planning application has been submitted to Brentwood Borough Council which, if successful, would see the business park, in Warley Gap, demolished and replaced with 13 detached houses, a mix of three and four bed properties.
The land owned by Asphaltic Developments Limited is currently used by several popular enterprises including Brentwood Park Golf Range, Brentwood Karting and the Brentwood Park Ski and Snowboard Centre.
The proposal has caused outrage for both staff and business owners on the Leisure Park, with a petition to save the site launched by Ski and Snowboard Centre director Steven Cis.
More than 1,400 people have already signed the petition which will be delivered to the council when it hits the set target of 1,500 signatures.
