Next week, you may notice people carrying out some work at Seaburn. This is site investigation work, and is standard practice at a pre-planning stage, to inform detail design work that we will undertake if the planning application is given the green light.
It is common to do these investigative works pre-planning, as there is normally a condition to have a remediation strategy agreed before works can start on site.
These works are confined to the car parking area and the old pitch and putt site, as well as the area of Cut Throat Dene behind Martinos Restaurant; all are within the soft landscaped areas.
The team will be on-site, undertaking this work, for about two weeks, with monitoring then taking place over a three-month period before the bore holes and caps are removed and the area reinstated.
We will also be undertaking similar site investigation works on the area to the rear of Cuthbertson Court, on Cut Throat Dene, but need a licence from Sunderland City Council to do the works in this area, so we will update you as soon as we know when this is likely to get started.
The work is being managed by Cundalls on behalf of Siglion, and the contractor who will carry out the work is Allied Exploration & Geotechnics Limited.
As ever, please get in touch if you would like to discuss any of this – or the wider plans for Seaburn – with Katie Sully, development director at Siglion.
