Lots of sites to build on

Sunderland Echo - - Opinion -

Come on, Sun­der­land coun­cil­lors, have some morals. We need to show pride in our parks and nat­u­ral habi­tat, once built on they never re­turn.

Why build on green belt, is this due to land recla­ma­tion costs?

Please con­sider the miles of river­side where we could build ex­ec­u­tive hous­ing.

The Smiles site in Dept­ford, an ex­ec­u­tive river­side es­tate? The for­mer col­lege North Hyl­ton Road, the for­mer Hep­worths site, Coles Cranes (Pallion vil­lage) for­mer hous­ing land in Pen­ny­well and Ford, to name but a few pro­posed sites?

And no I don’t live in a de­sired lo­ca­tion, I live in a coun­cil house but I do care for our en­vi­ron­ment.

Con­sider our her­itage for the next gen­er­a­tion. John Ed­wards
