Gosforth Park Reserve; Yes that's the one where all the Bittern pics are coming from at the moment(and how nice they are too) but for how long!!.This reserve is under threat from both adjoining Councils Newcastle and North Tyneside regarding housing development,the most immediate threat is from the proposed Bellway development of 350+ houses at Whitehouse Farm Westmoor.
This reserve needs the land at Whitehouse Farm for its future survival,it provides a wildlife corridor between the park,Westmoor and Killingworth and is the last small area of land remaining only 100 metres from the park woodland (the other side of the road to the garden centre)your protests are urgently needed to try and stop this urban sprawl and help the wildlife on this reserve and there is little time to do it 31 January is the deadline. Please send your protests to Mr Ken Wilson, Head of Planning, Planning Department,
Quadrant East,Cobalt Business Park,North-Tyneside.NE27 0BY. Thanks for your help Joe.
