The land was gifted to the "people of South Shields" for their efforts during WW2. So what right does a private company have to take such a high percentage of the land then charge people for use of "their facilities?" This is out of order and it should not be allowed to go ahead! More greenbelt taken from South Tyneside, walks taken away from people and their dogs, free space taken from joggers, kids who want to kick a footie about and horse riders who want a bit of time off the roads. Instead we will be left with monthly bills to use the facilities, higher volumes of traffic/ busier roads and facilities that are only of interest to rugby players. We are being cleverly exploited... as yes, it is for leisure use... but not as it should be, this is not what it was left for! Apparently this is going to go ahead no matter what appeals are put in place. Do we have a voice? No, probably not!
