An update in respect of the Seaburn planning application

We posted on 31 October confirming that Siglion were submitting a planning application seeking outline consent for the development at Seaburn, to set out the overall quantum of and locations of development in respect of the mix of uses for the site. The planning application therefore contains no detailed design other than the phase 1 infrastructure works and proposed car parking onto Dykelands Road.

 

This planning application has now been registered, and is available for you to view online at

http://www.sunderland.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=OG0TDPBBK7100 with the reference being 16/02056/HY4.

 

A summary of the application is also available.

planning-application-summary-151116

 

Our shared vision remains for Seaburn to once again become a strong leisure destination and we continue to value the community input into many aspects of the development that will define the character and look of the properties, creating a place that appeals to young and old alike, for the people of Sunderland and also the wider North East region.

 

We are very happy and keen to engage on a direct basis about this and anyone interest in doing so should contact Katie Sully at  Katie.sully@siglion.co.uk.

  1. Why is it that in every post of SIGLION they mention this: ‘Our shared vision remains for Seaburn to once again become a strong leisure destination’. This is untrue. Yes, many people agree that Seaburn is in desperate need of a transformation, however, Siglion has, so far, failed to prove that anybody shares ‘their’ vision for the future of Seaburn. SIGLION is just ignoring the majority of people’s opinions. https://www.change.org/p/siglion-demand-siglion-for-a-better-vision-and-plan-for-the-seaburn-seafront-redevelopment?recruiter=509724083&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=copylink
    Dear Louise, Dear John, Dear Katie, please make changes to your blog and your planning application information, so far nobody has publicly shared your vision for the Seaburn area. Time to show us all where your ‘silent’ majority is hiding….

  3. ‘Our shared vision remains for Seaburn to once again become a strong leisure destination, providing indoor and outdoor space that attracts people 365
    days a year and we continue to value the community input into many aspects of the development that will define the character and look of theproperties,
    creating a place that appeals to young and old alike for the people of Sunderland and also the wider North East region.’
    This is wrong ! According to the results of Siglion’s own surveys people do indeed want a transformation for Seaburn but they do not share SIGLION’s vision!!! Seaburn shoudl not become a housing estate and a profit cow for only a few.

  4. It is absolutely disgusting that you haven’t listened at all to the public…… people have said in numerous polls and questionnaires that they don’t want 5 story buildings…. that they don’t want a massive housing estate …. have you all listened??? Nope.. it’s all about profit

  5. Very disappointed that Siglion have not listened to peoples concerns and just gone a ahead with little if no changes in the plans, turning what was the areas biggest leisure area into a housing estate is a big mistake, once the housing is built there’s no going back. Sad days ahead.

  6. Residents in the development area are terrified of the upheaval, we have been told that Seaburn is for the many and not the few and no one on the council seems to care about the everyday impact of increased noise and traffic that the locals will have to tolerate on a daily basis. There is a council ombudsman and as the council have been driven entirely by profit and have almost total opposition from residents a complaint could be made to the ombudsman, there is also a definite conflict of interest due to the fact that a number of people are working for the council planning department and the development company simultaneously . Much of the land involved seems to have been sold at less than market value. How is it possible that a council member with influence over planning applications can also be a board member of the property development company responsible? Please Google Siglion, look at the numerous joint council and board members. The individuals involved claim to have the best interests of the town at heart but have universal opposition. If it walks like a duck……..
