I am signing this petition because more and more free space which communities have access to is disappearing. If we want our children to be fit and healthy, there has to be access to free parks as not everyone can afford to pay membership fees. Also as this site was gifted to the people of South Shields, no one has the right to sell this on without the people of South Shields being consulted and their views being taken into account.

You cannot just remove green spaces and recreational areas, they are areas where people can go to enjoy the outdoors and to maintain their health in urban areas. There are plenty of alternative areas available for redevelopment. Stop using cheap options and leaving dereliction in other areas, redevelop and renovate.

I believe in keeping public parks exactly that....for members of the public not for a member only rugby / cricket club. The council have obviuosly decided they can make money by selling off something they are meant to maintain to a private development and also no doubt make money by the release of the lucrative site that Westoe Rugby club currently occupies! John Temple stated that the park named after him should ALWAYS and ONLY be for public leisure use, hence the reason the Leisure centre was allowed to be built.
