Save South Gosforth Green

South Gosforth Green LocationSouth Gosforth Green is well known to locals as a quiet oasis next to the noise of Haddrick's Mill.

Newcastle City Council has released plans to build bungalows on about a third of the Green.

Whilst we support the Council's aim to build housing specifically to aid those touched with autism we believe there are better nearby places available. Most notably the former Jesmond Dene Nursery site which the council is planning to sell off for millions of pounds. Like South Gosforth Green the nursery is set-off from the main road. Unlike the Green the Nursery gives access to the superb Jesmond Dene which would be of great benefit to the residents.

6 bungalows set in a tranquil green setting would be ideal for this type of accommodation.

So we call on the City Council to abandon plans to build on South Gosforth Green and to look instead at other sites in the area.
