Save Seaburn Recreation Fields

Malcolm Bond at Seaburn Recreation FieldJoin Malcolm Bond's campaign to classify Seaburn Recreation Field as Greenspace and protect it from developers by signing his open letter to Sunderland City Council.

Local campaigner Malcolm Bond is writing an open letter to Sunderland Council demanding that Seaburn Recreation Field is officially listed as 'Greenspace' in the Council's proposed 'Allocations and Designations Plan'.

Malcolm said: "In 2018 Sunderland council shockingly listed Seaburn Recreation Fields (behind Morrisons and Seaburn Camp) as a 'Developable Site' paving the way for housing developers to bulldoze the fields and build hundreds of new executive style homes."

"The council are now consulting on their land allocations plans and I want to see Seaburn Recreation Fields listed as 'Greenspace' for the benefit of local people."

"As we've seen with the housing developments on the University Fields and beside Seafields, we can't rely on our Conservative councillors voting against plans for new housing, not surprising when they live miles away in Ashbrooke and Grangetown. I want to see the land protected in planning law."

"Please sign my open letter to Sunderland Council Planning Team supporting their listing of Seaburn Recreation Fields as 'Greenspace' and protected for future generations."

Open letter to Sunderland City Council Planning Policy Team

I/we the undersigned support the inclusion of the whole of the remaining green fields 'Seaburn Recreation Fields' behind Morrisons Supermarket in Seaburn as Greenspace in the Allocations and Designations Plan currently being consulted on.

The park provides recreation facilities for residents of Seaburn , South Bents, Seafields and Seaburn Dene. The fields are regularly used by children and young people for ball games and other play as well as by residents for exercise and dog walking or general recreation purposes.
