SEAFORD TOWN COUNCIL SELLS OFF GREEN SPACES
November 14 2016.
Lib Dem release:
Residents are angry at Seaford Town Council’s proposals to sell off its green spaces for housing developments. Liberal Democrat Councillor Carolyn Lambert says: “People are fed up with what they see as the over-development of Seaford. Our health services and infrastructure are struggling to cope with the impact of all the extra housing. We have seen a number of large developments that have brought no benefit to the town but have continued to destroy Seaford’s unique character as a seaside town with easy access to the downs and to the South Downs National Park.”
Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate Kelly-Marie Blundell says: “Maria Caulfield came to Seaford Town Council before the General Election with a proposal to sell off part of the Crouch Gardens in order to re-locate Seaford Football Club Councillor Rob Blackman, former Leader of Lewes District Council tried to sell off the Buckle car park for high-rise luxury flats. These proposals seem to be part of a determination on the part of Conservative councillors to sell off the family silver.”
Residents are urged to write to all Seaford Town Councillors with a copy to the South Downs National Park asking them to unequivocally protect key green spaces in the town as community assets including the large parcel of land at the western end of Lexden Road which links with North Way and via a twitten to Firle Road, the field bordering Southdown Road and Chyngton Road, the Village Green off Princess Drive, the field next to Normansal Park Avenue, the 6th hole on Seaford Head Golf Course and the Sunken Gardens and surrounding land on the seafront .
